Political Prisoner Nasta Loika's Sentence Remains Unchanged

The sentence of political prisoner Nasta Loika was left unchanged.

On June 20, Minsk City Court sentenced the political prisoner to 7 years in prison for drafting the report "Persecution of anarchists, anti-fascists, leftists and social activists in Belarus" (2017 — August 2018). It allegedly contained a critical assessment of the activities of police officers.

The trial was closed to the public, so the details and Nasta’s position during the trial are unknown.

On October 3, the Supreme Court considered an appeal against the verdict. The judicial board, chaired by Judge Petr Listratsenko, upheld the verdict and rejected the appeal. Nasta's transfer to a penal colony is expected in the near future.
