Minsk Savetski District Court has fined two activists of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Party – Halina Karzhaneuskaya and Ina Loika – 300,000 roubles each for staging pickets for election boycott.

The BCD press-service earlier reported that police phoned members of the initiative group of Maryna Khomich, leader of the BCD’s youth wing, urging the activists to provide explanations on the pickets.
