According to BelaPAN

At night of 17-18 April in Minsk Uladzimir Katsora, the chair of Homel regional electoral headquarters of A.Milinkevich, was detained. According to the deputy chair of the headquarters Iury Zakharanka, the detainee was accused of ‘organization of unauthorized meeting’. It can be possibly connected to the fact that Mr Katsora filed with Homel City Executive Committee the request to authorize the Chernobyl Way action which he intends to hold on 25 April in the center of the city. ‘I don’t rule out that V.Katsora will suddenly start to ‘use four-letter words and cling to passers-by’ or will ‘resist to the police’ on the eve of the action. The practice of arrests on such accusations is already quite well developed in Belarus’, said Mr Zakharanka.

Before the trial that was appointed on 2 p.m. V.Katsora was kept in a temporary isolator. It’s quite interesting that the ex-candidate to presidency Aliaksandr Milinkevich intends to take part in Chernobyl Way in Homel.
