MINSK, December 24 (Itar-Tass) -- The Minsk City Court will start hearing complaints from Russian citizens seized in Minsk on December 19-20 during unauthorized opposition actions at 3:00 p.m. local time (4:00 p.m. Moscow time) on December 27, counselor of the Russian embassy in Belarus Vladimir Gusev told Itar-Tass on Friday.
He said Russian diplomats would attend the hearing.
The embassy has urged district courts, which are hearing appeals of the Russian citizens for their release from custody, to send documents to the Minsk City Court. The appeals will be heard together with the complaints.
Russian diplomats will visit the eleven detainees again on Saturday, Gusev said.
