Chronicle of repression
On 8 April 2008 judge Morozova of the court in Polotsk charged Katsiaryna under the article 193, part 1 of the Criminal Code (acting on behalf of an unregistered organization) and sentenced her to a fine of 50 minimal wages. During her speech in the court Salauyova said: “As for whether I plead guilty or not – if a desire to revive Belarusian language and culture, to establish a market economy in the country, to introduction fair elections can be called a criminal offense, I really am guilty and I plead guilty.”
