Uladzimir Vialichkin was released from detention center today at 11.30 a.m.

The human rights defender says he was detained on March 24 as a suspect in some crimes. The police took him to Maskouski police department of Brest and checked the information about him in the police database. Then the police searched the activist in the presence of deputy head of the police department Stsiapanau. The police looked for prohibited printed materials. However, they failed to find anything except Nasha Niva newspaper. Then the police tried to accuse Vialichkin of disorderly conduct with the help of some suspicious “witnesses”. The human rights activists insisted that the trial should be held only if his lawyer and witnesses are present. As a result, the trial was postponed to 3 p.m. on March 29.
