On 28 February Zmitser Ivanouski, vice-chair of the public association Perspective, was sentenced to 15 days of jail by judge of Hrodna Leninski Borough Court Natallia Kozel. Before that, N. Kozel gave large fines to Valery Fralou and Siarhei Skrabets.

Ivanouski was found guilty in the organization of the unauthorized meeting of Hrodna entrepreneurs on 10 February. We should remind that on the eve of the action the flyers of the democratic movement Haradzenski Vybar (Hrodna Choice) with the urges to take part in it were distributed at the markets of Hrodna. These flyers were signed by Zmitser Ivanouski and the leaders of Respublika deputy group Valery Fralou and Siarhei Skrabets.

On 9 February the police attempted to detain Ivanouski, but entrepreneurs managed to defend him. Only on 28 February the police finally arrested him and took to the court.
