    Nadzeya Kalin­i­na was detained on Jan­u­ary 29. TUT.by jour­nal­ist tried to get into the cul­tur­al cen­ter “Kamvol”, where the cap­i­tal del­e­gates of the All-Belaru­sian People’s Assem­bly were gath­ered. Kalin­i­na was not allowed to the meet­ing with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the offi­cials and was detained soon after­wards. The rea­sons for deten­tion became known only dur­ing the tri­al. The judge said that the jour­nal­ist was accused of unau­tho­rized pick­et­ing: she alleged­ly shout­ed “provoca­tive slo­gans”. Police also filed a report for dis­obe­di­ence to offi­cer dur­ing an ille­gal pick­et.

    At the tri­al TUT.by jour­nal­ist asked to show a video from the House of Cul­ture, where the deten­tion took place. At first Judge Tat­siana Shot­sik reject­ed the request, but then con­clud­ed that it was nec­es­sary to demand a video from the cul­tur­al cen­ter. After that the tri­al will con­tin­ue.
