Slutsk civil activist Vital Amialkovich is appealing a fine imposed by the administrative commission of the district’s executive committee back on 6 September.

The appeal lodged with Slutsk District Court argues that the verdict is illegal and groundless, as the activists claims he did not commit the offence he was punished for. Apart from that, Vital Amialkovich says the sentence is based on testimony from an unknown policeman. The administrative commission refused to name the witnesses, saying that the evidence was provided by the district’s police department.
