The court of Minsk's Frunzenski district heard the case of releasing Andrei Paznyak, a participant of the 2010 post-election protests, on parole and released him from punishment on February 21.

Minsk's Leninski district court gave the activist a 3-year non-custodial sentence on May 26, 2011. Later the sentence was changed to correctional labour, withholding 15% of his salary, Viasna human rights centre reports.

Andrei Paznyak was detained on December 19, 2010, on Independence Square in Minsk. He was fined 30 penalty units. After he didn't come to work after New Year's Day, it turned out that Andrei Paznyak was detained in a criminal case and taken into custody.

On May 26, 2011, he was given a 3-year non-custodial sentence by Minsk's Leninski district court.
