The prosecutor’s office of Baranavichy has brought a criminal case on the fact of making political graffiti on the walls of Baranavichy city court. 

The graffiti ‘Stop Persecution of Young Front!’ and ‘Stop Persecution of Democratic Youth!’ were made on 10 August. In the evening of 10 August in Baranavichy the police detained an activist of Baranavichy Young Front branch Viktar Parnachou. The policemen confiscated from him a paint balloon and composed a detention report and a confiscation report. 

Bear in mind that about a dozen of activists have received different sentences for political graffiti. The investigators and the courts considered it as defilement of property and malignant hooliganism.
