Uladzimir Yaromenak's case to be reconsidered
15:15, — Politics
Young Front activist Uladzimir Yaromenak was given 12 days in custody for violating the rules of the preventive surveillance.
He talks to charter97.org about the details.
“I was not warned that the court of Minsk's Pershamaiski district would hear a case on violations. I visited the corrections department for a regular check. They called a district police officer, who handed in a court decision dated January 15, 2012, on giving me 12 days in custody for alleged violations of the rules of preventive surveillance,” the activist says.
He added that he applied to the Minsk city court, which recalled the decision of the Pershamaiski district court and sent the case for reconsideration.
“The date of the trial is known yet. I can be found not guilty, but it is highly unlikely. It's most likely that I will be given a short term in custody for violating the rules of the police surveillance. I'd like to know the details, but I wasn't summoned to the trial in the Pershamaiski district court,” Uladzimir Yaromenak said.
Young Front activist Uladzimir Yaromenak was arrested in January 2011 as a suspect in the case over “mass disorders”. He was sentenced to three years in prison. He served his term in a penal colony near Vitebsk and was pardoned in August 2011. He was arrested several times for administrative offences after the release.
