In the former Soviet republic of Belarus, a trial for high treason in absentia has begun against opposition leader Svetlana Tichanovskaya, who fled into exile. Tichanowskaja and four other defendants who also went on the run are charged with conspiracy to unconstitutionally seize power and form an extremist group, Belarusian state news agency Belta reported Tuesday at the start of the trial. .

Tichanovskaya challenged long-time authoritarian ruler Alexander Lukashenko in the 2020 presidential election and is considered by many election observers to be the real winner of the vote. After the 68-year-old was declared the winner, there were unprecedented demonstrations in Belarus, which had Lukashenko brutally crushed. Tikhanovskaya, who helped lead the protests, was forced into exile in Lithuania. She there she founded a government in exile in the summer.

Tichanovskaya himself described the procedure as a “farce”. She has not yet been informed of the exact accusations against her, she wrote on her Telegram channel.
