Three days in jail for ‘impostor tsar’ T-shirt


He was accused of disobedience to the police, Euroradio reported earlier.

Yury Rubtsou participated in the Dzyady manifestation organized by the Christian Conservative Party of Belarusian Popular Front. He was wearing a T-short with the inscription No to the fourfold President! He is not a President, but an impostor tsar! The inscription Lukashenka, go away was on the back. Policemen asked him to take off the T-shirt at the beginning of the action but he refused. 

The sentence proves the dependence of Belarusian courts on the authorities, Rubtsou said after the trial. The activist has not decided yet whether he will appeal the sentence, Radio Liberty reports.
