The complaint of the student Maya Abromchyk who had suffered from the violent actions of the riot police during the dispersal of the peaceful protest action on Nezalezhsnats Square in Minsk in the aftermath of the presidential election of 19 December 2010, was registered by the UN Human Rights Committee.

The registration number is 2228/2012. The Belarusian courts did not want to punish the people who were guilty of inflicting a hard fracture of the leg to Maya, though their surnames could be seen in the detention protocol.

The recovery took a year, Maya suffered three surgical operations.

In April 2011 the prosecutor of the Maskouski district of Minsk informed Maya Abromchyk that a criminal case had been brought on her complaint under Article 155 of the Criminal Code (infliction of hard bodily injuries by negligence) against an unidentified person. However, the police were not figurants of that case, though in the results of the forensic examination, held on request of the prosecutor's office, it was stated that the injuries could be inflicted by something like a police baton.

According to the international agreements, the Belarusian authorities must present an answer to the UN Human Rights Committee concerning the essence of Maya Abromchyk's case within six-month period.
