Anti-nuclear activist denied entry to Lithuania

Anti-nuclear activist Mikalai Ulasevich failed to learn through a court why he was banned from entering Lithuania.

On February 6, the Vilnius Regional Administrative Court heard Mikalai Ulasevich's complaint about the ban to enter Lithuania during the referendum on the NPP construction, though the activist had a Schengen visa.

A representative of the Lithuanian MFA explained to the court why the entry had been denied, but refused to tell the reason to the activist. He asked to have the trial behind closed doors. The court decided the trial should be open to public, but classified documents should not be disclosed, the press service of the anti-nuclear campaign reports.

Ulasevich said in the court he didn't have claims to Lithuania at the moment, because he had already received a Lithuanian visa. The activist stressed he still insisted on his complaint, because the unfair decision should be cancelled. Similar mistakes should be prevented in the future. The people guilty in this misunderstanding should not feel impunity, he said.

The MFA representative asked Ulasevich who funded his public activity. The activist answered he wanted to save my land from nuclear disasters and said he received nothing but problems for his activity.

The decision of the Vilnius Regional Administrative Court on Mikalai Ulasevich's complaint will be announced on February 25. A similar complaint by coordinator of the Belarusian Anti-Nuclear Campaign Tatyana Novikava will be heard on the same day. Novikava was denied entry to Lithuania together with Ulasevich. At the first trial over her complaint, the Lithuanian MFA refused to show the court the information about the ban to enter Lithuania.
