Ales Masiuk

On 10 October the Slonim District Court started trying Ales Masiuk, a local activist of the Belarusian Christian Democracy, for participation in the People's Assembly on 8 October.

At first he was summonsed to the Slonim District Police Department and showed his case. Then he was taken to the court. The trial was led by Judge Tamara Khatsimets. The hearings were postponed to 12 October after the activist demanded to provide witnesses who could confirm that he was really an organizer and participant of the People's Assembly.
