Maryna Kavaleuskaya, a lawyer of a former political prisoner, was banned from leaving Belarus.

The lawyer could not get to Vilnius today. She wanted to go on a private trip to Vilnius with her husband and child, but got “exit denied” stamp in her passport on the border. Maryna Kavaleuskaya links the travel ban with the cases she handles.

Bear in mind presidential candidate Andrei Sannikau was detained on the border today on the way to Vilnius. The politician, who was recently released after 16 months in prison, was thoroughly searched, but allowed to leave the country.
