Three of the applicants are not permitted by the local authority pickets for the release of political prisoners appealed to the court about the actions of the Mogilev city executive committee. Union activists Yury Novikov, Sergey Fomin and the head of the regional branch of the BPF Dmitry Solovyov asking the court to declare illegal and annul the decision business manager Igor Avseenko City Council for permission to hold protests. May 17 Leninsky court Mogilev will review the complaint activists.
The failure to picket City Council explained that the venue for public events organized by political, union and NGOs, defined Stadium Chelyuskintsev the street.
Yuri Novikov"That decision, which adopted the City Council on the venue for our activities contrary to the law. The Law "On Mass Events" exists to allow people to use it and to carry out such activities. But it turns out that in Mogilev within a few years we can not hold under the law. We refer to where people do not walk their dogs. What is the point where picket, for example, against the repression of the KGB? We also send out a completely the other side from the KGB building. The meaning of this event in what? This is absurd. "
The applicants wanted to hold pickets 25, 26 and 27 March in crowded places in the city center. Two of them — in front of City Council and the Regional Directorate of the KGB. Bid to host the protest signed 13 activists of political, social and trade union organizations.
