For peaceful protest in Kharkiv: from 136 UAH to 10 days imprisonment

On 7 July 2010 3 the Dzherzhynsky District Court in Kharkiv issued three rulings over members of “Zeleny Front” [“Green Front”]  detained on 5 and 6 July in Gorky Park where they were endeavouring to stop the entirely illegal felling of trees.  This work is continuing despite the parliamentary committee’s conclusions, the lack of permits and strong public protest.

All three activists were detained, as were the two whom Amnesty International has already declared prisoners of conscience, under Article 185 of the Code of Administrative Offences – disobeying a police officer.

According to their lawyer, Tatyana Vishnevetskaya, Yevgeny Kotlyar, detained on 5 July, was fined 136 UAH (Judge Tatyana Shtykh).

Alexander Shepel was fined 255 UAH (Judge Sergei Lazyuk).

According to Andrei Tsukanov from “Green Front”, Ihor Yasinsky, detained on 6 July, was sentenced by Judge Nikolai Zadorozhny to 10 days administrative arrest.

Ihor’s lawyer Maxim Korniyenko says that the court hearing into the case of Alexander Gapon, also detained on 6 July, is scheduled.
