Zinaida Mikhniuk

On 11 November the Maskouski District Court of Brest considered the criminal case against Zinaida Mikhniuk, who had been detained on 8 October, the day when the People's Assembly was held.

The woman was one of its organizers, but was detained preventively, several hours before it, and charged with the use of obscene language in public.

The trial started on 3 November, but was postponed to 11 November, because of the absence of a police witness. Other policemen gave their testimonies on 11 November, but didn't manage to prove that she had really used obscene language.

Nevertheless, the judge found Zinaida Mikhniuk guilty and fined her 70,000 rubles.
