Detention Center No. 1 in Valadarski Street in Minsk

Maksim Vetkin, who had been detained on 4 November in Minsk, was presented charges in the assault on the Embassy of the Russian Federation on 30 August and the assault on the Belarubank in the night of 30 April – 1 May. Thus, Maksim Vetkin became the third person charged of the hooligan assaults that had been committed this year in Salihorsk and different parts of Minsk.

As we informed earlier, all assaults were combined in one criminal case under Article 339, part 2 of the Criminal Code, ‘hooligan actions by a group of individuals’. The two other accused are Mikalai Dziadok and Aliaksandr Frantskevich, who are also kept in custody.

According to belarus.indymedia.org , on 11 November Mikalai Dziadok was transferred from the pre-trial prison in Valadarski Street in Minsk to Zhodina. The reasons for the transfer aren’t known yet. The term of the detention of Mr. Dziadok was extended to 6 February 2011.

Aliaksandr Frantskevich (whose detention term was extended as well) and Maksim Vetkin are still kept in the pre-trial prison in Valadarski Street.
