11:43, — Politics
He was detained at work.
Nasha Niva learnt it from his sister.
She says some men came to his work and said they needed 15 minutes to talk to him. He didn't return to work. Later, an officer of the Maskouski district police department called and said Andrei was detained until trial.
He is charged with “disobeying police officers”. The trial begins at 14: 00 in the Maskouski district court.
Activists of the National Bolshevick Party Dzmitry Palienka and Yauheny Kontush were also detained.
Human rights say the possible reason for the detention is a session of the CIS Foreign Ministers Council, which is held in Minsk on October 24-25.
