Aleh Aheyeu, the defense lawyer of Aliaksei Mikhalevich, has learnt that his client was transferred from the KGB jail to the pretrial detention facility of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Valadarski Street, Minsk.

As Mr. Aheyeu told the BelaPAN news agency, he had had a short talk with Mr. Mikhalevich on 6 January. The lawyer plans to meet with his client on Monday, 10 January, to discuss the tactics of defense and the possible legal proceedings.

Bear in mind that Mr. Mikhalevich and four more presidential candidates, are charged with organizing and participating in mass riot (Article 293 of the Criminal Code).
