Council of Ministers prepares amendments to Law On Mass Events

From now on, it will be necessary to obtain permit not only for pickets and demonstrations, but for silence as well.

The Council of Ministers suggests that a permit should be obtained "for mass presence of citizens in a previously designated public place (including open air) at a certain time for conducting previously agreed actions or inactivity. Such actions, or inactivity, may be organized through the Internet."

The draft project of the amendments is available i Russian at the web-site pravo.by .
