Today, the Minsk City Court heard the appeal of Aliaksandr Barazenka, cameraman of Belsat, who has been sentenced to 15 days' arrest allegedly for cursing.
It took for Judge Ihar Liubavitski 20 minutes to issue the decision. He watched the video where the journalist says he was a journalist and nothing else. The journalist had not been taken to court for appeal, his interests were represented by a lawyer.
Aliaksandr Barazenka is on hunger strike at Akrestsina: he only drinks water, juice and prison tea. His sentence ends on Sunday, at 3 pm.
