Ella Kesayeva, co-chairman of the 'Voice of Beslan' organization, has been brought up on administrative charges. Thereason was a November 7th rally organized by 'Voice of Beslan' and 'Mothers of Beslan'.

According to the indictment protocol, Ella Kesayeva is accused of putting up a road sign without coordinating with traffic authorities. Mostly women attended the rally, relatives of hostages slain in the assault (on the Beslan school). OnlyElla Kesaeva was indicted, however, since she was the chief organizer of the rally. Kesayeva believes that the delay in the indictment is connected with orders from above. If it was only the initiative of local police or local prosecutor, she noted. It would have been done in only a few days.

On November 7th the women set up a sign with the inscription Putin's Course next to the Beslan grammar school, with an arrow pointing in the direction of the school. Participants of the rally were protesting against an expanded advertising campaign in support of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his policies.
