Liavontsi Chypurnykh, Brest activist of the Belarusian Leftist Party “Fair World”, has lodged two complaints with local prosecuting authorities.

The activist argues that the police illegally detained and charged him with an administrative offence ahead of the People’s Assembly on 8 October. Mr. Chypurnykh also says the judge who convicted him applied a law that had nothing to do with the case.

In his other complaint, the activist says his rights were violated during his serving of a 5-day prison term handed down by the judge.
