MINSK, October 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The office of the Belarussian prosecutor general warned the opposition against rallying this weekend as the events were not permitted.
The so-called Popular Assembly uniting various opposition parties plans to hold a nationwide action on October 8 in Minsk, all regional and 48 district cities. The Popular Assembly said it plans to discuss how to take the country out of the political and economic crisis.
But Pavel Rodionov from the office of the prosecutor general said on Thursday the organizers were summoned to the office and warned of the consequences of the “unlawful action.”
“Such mass events, the people’s meetings, have not been allowed by local authorities. Therefore, the organization and holding of the mass events is unsanctioned,” he said and called on the population to ignore the action.
However organizers rejected claims they are violating law as local meetings do not demand permission of local authorities. Besides, the Popular Assembly is to rally in a place where mass events are officially allowed.
