Hrodna civil activists Yury Istomin, Uladzimir Khilmanovich and Vadzim Saranchukou have lodged a lawsuit with Leninski District Court against a ban on holding a meeting marking the Freedom Day issued by the city’s executive committee on 19 March.

However, the complaint will not be considered until the claimants pay an extra BYR 100,000 of state duties, as the lawsuit contests one more decision by local executive officials, namely that enumerating the authorized locations for holding mass events of 19 October 2011.
