Rabochy Rukh reported that the appeal against the case of the workers' organisation, which is trying to oppose Lukashenka's dictatorship in Belarus with the help of the strike movement, will be heard soon.
Consideration of the appeal will be held on 28 July at the Supreme Court. Judge Uladzimir Davydau will make a decision.

They were all accused of treason against the state, as well as some other articles of the Criminal Code. All political prisoners did not admit their guilt.
Judge Aliaksandr Piskunou imposed the following sentences on them:
Siarhei Shelest – 14 years,
Uladzimir Zhurauka – 15 years,
Andrei Paheryla – 14 years,
Hanna Ablab – 11 years,
