May 13, the Court Condo district of Minsk, the process of the three participants in the events of December 19. Here are judged co-organizing committee of the party "Belarusian Christian Democracy" and former head of the election headquarters of presidential candidate Vital Rymasheuski Paul Sevyarinets, journalist, the wife of former presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov Irina Khalip campaign manager and former candidate Nikolai Statkevich Sergei Martseleva.
19:30 Adjourned until 10:00 Monday, May 16. Verdict will be announced.
19:20 The last word Irina Khalip. During the whole trial, I wondered why in the process, I was in the company with Martseleva and Seviarynets? We were in teams of different candidates. I was pleased to meet with Sergey Martseleva. I have great respect for Paul Sevyarinets as one of the most decent people. I was shchastsivaya be in such company in the dock. While all of this can not be called happiness, and you can not wish even to an enemy.
I thought, as the one I was on the Square: as a citizen, as the wife of presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov, or as a journalist? I was there at 100% in all of these qualities. Even if I were not a journalist, I would have gone to the area along with Andrei Sannikov. I think for the happiness of the many women in this world, he chose me.
"All of us are judged for what we dared to try to use the Constitution. And we are responsible — the Constitution of the money — some have, and others — not. Do you — do not. Because you are not such that the blood is green and you head screwed on. But the problem is that we — are — and we have red blood and the rights we have — the same as that of those who want to take away these rights. "
For my family the authorities used a scorched earth policy that is left on the ground blood family Khalip and Sannikov. In this war was even involved my son. Before the trial, my mother used to say: Ira, if you will plant, I will not hide in front of his grandson, where are you, I'll tell them about the evil uncles in our apartment, and the most important thing an evil uncle. I told him that regardless of the court decision, the child needs to know the truth …
19:15In his final statement Seviarynets thanked those present baktskam, sisters and God that lives in this country. He says that the current system of justice — punitive, a descendant savechchyny. And that leads to hatred in people, not love.
It is significant that during the 4 months of detention, he had not been allowed to meet with a priest — and it's inhuman system that does not allow people to be the best.
We, the Belarusians do not love each other. This is evident from the speech of public officials. But love does not come herself, and is given by God. While Belarusians, a nation with thousands of years of history, do not turn to God, so far there is no love and no peace and image.
Seviarynets said that God can do anything. He asked permission to give the judge the book "I Love Belarus".
19:06 The last word Martseleva. Says he did not expect that his participation in the elections will end at the dock. It will be more careful adnostna participation in such political activities. He graduated from the statement: "And yet — it moves."
18:33 — 19:05 Acts lawyer Irina Khalip. The prosecution Khalip legally illiterate. Even the state prosecution has not understood what the wine Khalip. All the fault that she was in a convoy on a street during an unsanctioned rally.
Khalip can be blamed only for what it called a rally in the knowledge that he is not authorized. Khalip denies that called for, but at the time of the election campaign did not yet know how this will actually rally. The case file, which supposedly prove her guilt, in fact she used her constitutional right to freedom of expression.
On the eve of the elections in an interview with one of the leading international media, she said that she is entitled to their opinion and it is due to the law. In Belarus we have that right taken away by violence. Therefore, we, Belarusians, it is important to express their break, despite the prohibitions.
To the question, and if the situation gets out of control, Khalip said: "Our people are not of the temperament to grab their pitchforks. We should not padstavdyats the people of Belarus and each other. "
The lawyer says that this is evidence that there was no intentional violence Khalip did not commit and did not plan to carry out. Khalip not bring harm to businesses.
Khalip expressed that she is proud that she was the wife of presidential candidate Sannikov that she was his confidant and she journalist. She was in the square in all of these qualities. And most importantly: it was working there as a journalist. She pratsavana to "Novaya Gazeta" and "Echo of Moscow". When she was beaten, she was a live report. The missile is no crime.
Witness statements accuser's lawyer requests to assess the Criminal Code as false.
The lawyer points out how all the same type of evidence compiled a list of names of people who were in the head of the column.
She emphasizes that the policemen who were standing in a cordon, asked who was standing next to them — and they could not remember their colleagues nearby. And one of the officers said he is apolitical and explained that he named Irina Khalip because before that he was shown the video and called, that this woman — Irina Khalip.
Also, counsel states that on July 30 Khalip tapped illegally. He says that it is the pursuit of Khalip for its views, the profession of journalism. Her work brings only benefits to society. It is his work makes people think. Khalip — a national hero, and she is proud of her acquaintance. Requests to justify and back kanfiskavyanyya things.
18:15 — 18.30 Sevyarinets lawyer acts.
Sevyarinets actions do not match the article, according to which the prosecutor qualifies his actions. So, Seviarynets was in the Square and shouted, "We believe we can, we will win!" And "Long Live Belarus!" — This is not a criminal offense. Right to express an opinion guaranteed by the Constitution.
Seviarynets not persuaded anyone to disobedience, and this is confirmed by the case. Neither Seviarynets, nor anyone else has pushed the traffic police.
Being on the roadway is not a crime. Especially, when people could not fit on the sidewalks. That people do not padushylisya, they took to the road, so the judge for these actions is unacceptable.
There is no explanation of why companies like McDonald's, the exchanger in the building of the supermarket "Central" closed as no disturbances occurred. Explanation of the danger — flimsy. The lawyer drew attention to the personality of the client. He — a true patriot of Belarus, does a lot for its future. This is the believer who stands for tolerance and tolerance. Therefore, he can not call for violence.
Asks the defendant to justify because its actions are qualified with the relevant articles of the Administrative Code. He says that 19 is not abdylosya tragedy, and what happened now, the elite of society — pismennki, journalists are in prison — this is the real tragedy. These people need to leave the room without an escort.
18:10 The lawyer said that the accused person can only be perfect — Martselev did not do anything criminal. Punishment two years even with adterminrvkay does not match perfect. Says that the punishment should not be associated with deprivation of liberty in any fo
17:57 The prosecutor asked to punish:
Paul Sevyarinets — 3 years of imprisonment with a direction to correctional facilities;
Irina Khalip — 2 years' imprisonment, suspended for two years;
