Uladzimir Yaromenak to be released on March 11

A political prisoner is expected to be released from a detention facility in Baranavichy on March 11.

There's no information about the exact time of the release, but it is known Young Front activist Uladzimir will leave the detention facility by early afternoon.

Last August, Minsk's Pershamaiski district court found Yaromenak guilty of violating the rules of preventive supervision and sentenced him to three months in detention. Uladzimir and his lawyer appealed against the court decision, but the Minsk city court upheld the ruling. Yaromenak was taken into custody on December 11.

Uladzimir Yaromenak was involved in the criminal case over mass protests in Minsk on December 19, 2010. He was sentenced to three years in prison and pardoned by Lukashenka in August 2011. Yaromenak was placed under preventive supervision. He was tried twice since then. On April 27, 2012, he was given seven days in custody allegedly for disorderly conduct. On January 24, 2013, he was sentenced to 12 days in custody for violating the rules of preventive supervision.

Human rights activists say the preventive supervision is used by the Belarusian authorities against former political prisoners to control them and exclude them from activism.
