Czech dissident Petruška Šustrová denied Belarusian visa

The prominent Czech dissident was denied a visa at the embassy of Belarus.

She is the chairperson of the supervisory board of the Czech-based organisation Civic Belarus. Petruška Šustrová headed the supervisory board after Vaclav Havel's death.
