Young Front activist Mikalai Dzemidzenka was released after 12 days in a detention centre in Akrestsin Street.
He said to charter97.org:
“I was detained in Victory Square on the morning of August 29. I was detained by riot policemen who arrived in several cars. I was taken to the Frunzenski district court and put on the list of persons restricted to travel abroad allegedly for failure to pay fines. But I paid all fines. I have the receipts at home.”
He underlined that the judge didn't react to his words and forbade him to go abroad.
“I was then taken to the Tsentralny district court. They had a police report saying that I disobeyed orders of riot policemen. A judge quickly sentenced me to 12 days in custody. I was taken to a detention centre in Akrestsin Street. Confinement conditions haven't changed. They are still bad. Frankly speaking, I don't understand why the authorities carried out this operation and gave me 12 days in jail,” Mikalai Dziamidzenka said.
