We remind that Vadzim Barouski and Kastus Litsvinski were detained by militia near the railway station in Lida on July 27.

The youth activists were pasting information leaflets about political prisoner Artsyom Dubski.

Officers of the law enforcement bodies guarded the “Young Front” activists to the local militia department.

Participant of the Process of 14 Artsyom Dubski was sentenced to a year of imprisonment in a minimal security colony on July 7 for violation of the rules of serving violation in the Case of 14. In 2008, the youth activist had to left fro Ukraine because he had received two far-fetched warnings for violation of the rules of serving punishment. Dubski was detained in Homel on February 13, 2009.

The Case of 14 is a criminal case under article 342 of the Criminal Code of Belarus, instigated against participants of the peaceful protest rally of entrepreneurs, held in Minsk on January 10, 2008.

For participation in this rally 14 youth activists were sentenced to different terms of imprisonment and restriction of liberty. Amnesty International recognized the participants of the Process of 14 Prisoners of Conscience in 2009.
