Minsk city court postpones consideration of Svyardlou's lawyer's appeal


On June 25, Euroradio's journalist Pavel
Svyardlou sent an appeal against the sentence made by the Maskouski district
court of Minsk, which had given the journalist 15 days of detention on June 22.
However, the document never reached the Minsk city court. Pavel passed his
appeal to the administration of the Center for isolation of law-breakers,
located in the Akrestsina street, in accordance with the rules. They were
supposed to pass it to the police city administration with a courier, and then
- to the court, also with a courier. However, Euroradio has found out that the
police city administration received the appeal, but the court never saw it. 

court thought that it is not enough to consider just the appeal of Svyardlou's
lawyer and postponed the hearing till uncertain time.

Let us remind you, consideration of
appeals of Pavel Svyardlou, Pavel Vinahradau and Alyaksandr Artsybashau,
sentenced on June 22, were supposed to take place today, on June 29, in the
Minsk city court. The judge postponed only consideration of the Euroradio's
journalist's appeal.
