The Supreme Court of Belarus found the verdict delivered against BCD co-chairman Pavel Seviarynets in May 2011 lawful and fair.

Tatsiana Seviarynets, the mother of the political prisoner, learned this from his lawyer Vadzim Mushynski.

“We are considering an opportunity of applying to international instances with the case,” Tatsiana Seviarynets said to the BCD press service in an interview.

We remind that on 16 May judge of the Zavadski District Court of Minsk Zhanna Brysina sentenced Pavel Seviarynets to three years in an open-type prison facility for participating in a protest demonstration on 19 December 2010. On 11 August Seviarynets arrived in the village of Kuplina (the Pruzhany district), where he serves his sentence.
