Belarus: Charges of Mass Riots = up To 15 years in Prison or Exile ?

Posted by Info on 02/04/2011

Natallya Radzina, the journalist had spent more than a month in the KGB remand prison, was released on recognizance and was “in exile” in her hometown of Kobryn. She was charged under two parts of Article 293 of the Criminal Code of Belarus (Mass riots”) and faced up to 15 years of imprisonment.

She was to appear for questioning in Minsk on March 31. She had been summoned by the KGB investigator. There the final indictment related to the case of “Square-2010” was likely to be brought in to her.
Natallya decided to leave Belarus before the interrogation.She has made a safe getaway and at the moment she is abroad in a place of safety.

We feel very good about the fact that the editor-in-chief Natallya Radzina is out of reach of the Belarusian KGB.
