about the sentence imposed upon AleksandrMolchanov (photo)
The sentence on the political prisoner, AleksandrMolchanov,
was announced today. The Zhodino City Court Judge sentenced the young
man who had two ill parents to 1.5 years in prison. His partner in crime
received the conditional sentence. TatsianaZelko, Our Generation’s leader,
was present at almost all the court sessions. Today, we publish her impressions
about the trial:
--- The trial is a show. They counted the loss of garbage. It turns out
that the boys stole something that doesn’t exist. The factory department
stopped its work 20 years ago. Yes, there was still some equipment inside.
But this equipment was not on the balance sheet, was not stocktaken, hence,
the factory cannot claim it as the scrap metal. The factory department
was handed over to Amkador. But Amkadorrefused to stocktake the scrap
metal. And to record this scrap metal as received the factory was supposed
to order and have an examination. And that is very expensive! Therefore
they were not able to return the metal to the collection points legally.
Half of the factory employees didn’t know that the factory had that department
and where it was located. But that is my personal impression and I don’t
want to make unsubstantiated accusations. The policemen could have prevented
the crime, instead, these birds spent two days on a tree. They sat there
and waited for the guys to take something from the factory. The police
agent Stetsko didn’t even conceal that. He said straightforwardly: We
waited for them to take more so that we could arrest them. I still have
many questions about the other person involved in this case. Yes, they
have known each other from childhood. But someone has betrayed Sasha,
anyways! And that was the person who knew. I’ve heard, the phone was tapped.
But Sasha is not such a fool, especially after the “square”. And the situation
with the car that they used to transport this scrap is weird. The arrest
on the car was lifted and the car was returned to the other person accused.
They can confiscate a new Mercedes at the border for two excess packs
of cigarettes. And here they return the instrument of a crime.
It all shows that the authorities might just be taking a revenge over
Aleksandr for the flag, for his denial to sign the appeal for clemency
after the “Square”, for their failure to fasten on him the symbols crime
in October last year… Anyways, there is a visible, great desire of the
authorities to suppress this young person. Therefore, I want to say that
our common goal today is to support his elderly ill parents. At least,
our initiative will put the maximum effort into that.
