Andrei Kim, political prisoner

Youth leader Andrei Kim is sentenced by the Tsentralny district court of Minsk (Judge Alena Illina) to a year and a half of imprisonment. Andrei Kim was found guilty of participating in the unauthorised protest rally of entrepreneurs, as well as of attack against traffic militia officer Yury Sychou. But guilt of Kim wasn’t proved on the trial. Video materials, shot by the KGB, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Belarusian TV, showed Sychou was hit by another militia officer. Andrei Kim didn’t even come near to the militiaman.

    Today a political prisoner Alyaksandr Zdzvizhkou has been released. The journalist has become the sixth prisoner of conscience released over the last month. Doors of oppositionists’ prisons have opened thanks to principled actions of the US and the EU, as well as the campaign of solidarity by the democratic forces. In December 2007 the US imposed sanctions against the largest Belarusian monopolist “Belneftekhim”, while the EU for more than a year stuck to its coordinated policy known as 12 recommendations of the EU.
