ЖУК, Елена Семеновна

 

Judge of Pervomayskij district court in Vitsebsk. On 24 February 2012, she sentenced Syarhei Kavalenka, who was considered as a political prisoner in 2012-2013, to two years and one month in prison for violation of probation. Alena Zhuk was directly responsible for violations of the human rights of a person because she denied Syarhei Kavalenka the right to a fair trial. Syarhei Kavalenka was previously given a suspended sentence for hanging out a banned historical white-red-white flag, a symbol of the opposition movement, in Vitsebsk. The subsequent sentence given by Alena Zhuk was disproportionately harsh given the nature of the crime and not in line with the criminal code of Belarus. The actions of Alena Zhuk constituted a direct violation of the international commitments of Belarus in the field of human rights.
