First terrorism case before the Belarusian justice system

Posted by Info on 18/07/2009

Mikalay Autukhovich, a businessman from the city of Vaukavysk who was arrested in February 2009 on charges of arson, has been charged with preparing a terrorist act, according to a Belarusian news agency.

The charges appear to mark the first terrorism case ever to come before the Belarusian justice system and come against a man whom activists at home and abroad have regarded as a political prisoner in the tightly run country.
