On 11 July Hrodna journalist, former political prisoner Mikola Markevich informed RFE/RL that his sons Aliaksei and Mikola are summonsed to the police.

On 10 July the wife of the latter son gave birth to a daughter. The investigator Yury Abramau phoned to the maternity hospital and asked her to give the husband’s mobile number. He said that Mikola was hiding from the police.
