Mmes. Iryna Yaskevich and Tatsiana Seviarynets are facing charges for alleged illegal organizing of so called People’s Assembly in Vitsebsk on 8 October.

Both activists say the charges are absurd.

“I did not even sign the paper, because it is nonsense! I told them there is a law on local assemblies, and we were guided by it. No permission by the authorities is required to hold such events,” says Mrs. Tatsiana Seviarynets.
