Judge of Moskovski Court of Brest Maria Levanchuk upheld the complaint of police chief.
We remind, the activist was detained and accused of bad language on June 28. The next day he was sentenced to seven days in jail, but later the case was sent up at re-examination and on September 2, Moskovski Court of Brest acquitted the activist.
In late September, Dmitry Shurhay received a notification from the court that the head of Moskovski police department of Brest Igor Zhigalov intends to appeal the decision.
In his turn, according to Euroradio Dmitry Shurhay will also appeal today's decision at higher courts, but he doesn't hope he will be acquitted for a second time.
If the Supreme Court leaves the decision unchanged, Shurhay will file a claim to the UN Court of Human Rights.
