Police tried to thwart welcoming of “European Belarus” activist from prison


The former political prisoner, an activist of “European Belarus” Syarhei Kazakou was released after 20 days’ arrest.

Charter97.org website has been informed about that by an activist of “European Belarus” Yuliya Stsyapanava.

Policemen took Kazakou from prison in Akrestsin Street to the police department of Leninski district, so that his friends would not be able to greet him. But later on his own he returned to the prison walls where his friends were waiting for him.

We remind that the former political prisoner Kazakou was subject to a preliminary arrest ahead of the Ice Hockey World Championship and arrested for 20 days on trumped-up charges.
