MINSK, November 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The Belarusian Supreme Court began to pronounce a verdict to Dmitry Konovalov and Vladislav Korolev, who are accused of a terrorist act committed in the Minsk metro on April 11, 2011. The verdict “will be read out completely, because several injured parties wished to listen to the full verdict,” First Deputy Chairman of the Belarusian Supreme Court Alexander Fedortsov said.
The verdict consists of 114 pages, he said. The pronouncement of the verdict will take 4-5 hours. The public prosecutor demanded death penalty for the defendants.
Meanwhile, Belarusian human rights activists and independent observers do not consider the guilt proved. The terrorist explosion killed 15 people and injured more than 200 people at the Oktyabrskaya metro station in Minsk on April 11.
