“I do not believe” campaign members detained for posting leaflets
Three days ago three young members of the campaign “I don’t believe” were detained by police while they were posting leaflets, informs AKIPress. The co-chair of Alliance of Liberal Youth “Free Generation” Mirsulzhan Namazaliev said that the police explained that posting the leaflets on the building of the Parliament equals to vandalism. He then continues:
After keeping children in Parliament building for some time, they brought them to police station of Pervomaisky district. There young people were to write explanations and sign the report. More than 500 leaflets “I do not believe”, glue and black bag of Joomart Saparbaev were withdrawn “voluntarily”. The detained were set free just some hours later. Now, these young people are expected to appear before the court under charges with vandalism.
The detained teenagers were released without trial as the officers of Pervomaiskiy district police station found no crime in actions of activists of “I do not believe” campaign. Mirsulzhan says that people who detained them were simply following the instructions given from the ‘top’ aimed to suppress different protest campaign. He also mentioned that 500 leaflets “I do not believe” were withdrawn by the police and were not returned back.
