Hundreds of activists have been detained throughout February and March by the Belarusian authorities as a result of mass protests against government economic policy.

In a letter issued to the Oktyabrsky District Court of Vitebsk city in Belarus Civil Rights Defenders calls for the immediate release of Pavel Levinov and for all administrative charges to be dropped against him. He was sentenced to 15 days in prison while acting in his capacity as observer while monitoring the peaceful protests of March 26 for the Belarusian- Helsinki Committee.

Civil Rights Defenders call on the High Court to act in accordance with the international obligations taken by the Republic of Belarus and to immediately stop the administrative proceedings against Pavel Levinov as it is clear there were no elements of administrative offence in the actions committed by him.
