Defending History Team at Vilnius County Court to Support Evaldas Balčiūnas



VILNIUS—At yet another frivolous-case hearing this morning, four supporters of Defending History author Evaldas Balčiūnas turned out to provide moral support. Balčiūnas is a major critic of public shrines, street names and monuments that honor Holocaust perpetrators, as well as an active opponent of neo-Nazi marches and activities, especially those with tacit support from elements of government.

His supporters expressed hope, that at the next hearing, scheduled for Vilnius County Court, Thursday 14 May 2015, at 14:00 (2 PM), Laisves Prospect 79a, court 503, there will be more monitors from the human rights community on hand, including those from the human rights NGOs in town.
