Brest resident Taras Berazhnoi has lodged a complaint with the Supreme Court against a fine for alleged involvement in a “silent protest” on 29 June.

The fine has already been appealed at Brest Regional Court, which upheld the verdict.

Taras Berazhnoi argues he did not participate in the protest, but was detained by plainclothes policemen, who did not give their names. Nor did they produce any IDs.

Apart from that, the plaintiff says the photo evidence mentioned by the case file did not prove his guilt, as some of them were taken on 28 June.
