We continue the cycle of stories of people who were persecuted in Belarus for their civil position. Leokadia Koyan was a member of the initiative group of Viktor Babariko, was an observer at the presidential elections, and a volunteer in the camp on Okrestin Street. In November last year, she faced persecution from the security forces, after which she was forced to leave Belarus. Now Leokadia is in Lithuania and can tell her story.
Due to a difficult childhood and a lot of psychological traumas, the mustachioed dictator sent many girls, wives, mothers, and grandmothers to prison. And our Belarusians need to be constantly supported because prison is not the best place for the beautiful half of humanity.
The story of Maria Nesterova has been in custody since October 23. During this time, family members saw her only once. The "investigation" is not moving - there is no investigator. It is not known when the trial will take place. Andrey, the son of Maria, shared the story of his mother.
We are continuing the project “Let's back to the legal track.” This time, Marina Nikandrina, a lawyer of "A Country to Live in" foundation, will talk about the types of punishment that Belarusian courts apply to political prisoners and the procedure for their execution.
