At 3.30 p.m. Aksana Samuilava, coordinator of the civil movement “Tell the Truth!” in the Mahiliou region, was fined 875,000 rubles for “unlawful distribution of mass media without imprint”. The verdict was issued by Judge Ihlikau in Aksana’s absence (she wasn’t invited to the trial).

The fine concerns the detention of Aksana’s car by the road police on 3 September. The car was searched and some of printed materials of “Tell the Truth!” were found there. However, the activist didn’t distribute them. There are also other irregularities in the case. Aksana Samuilava is going to appeal against the verdict.
