The "Young Front" activist Uladzimir Yaromenak has been found in the detention center at Akrestsina Street after the KGB men took him from his house on Wednesday for an interrogation as a witness with regard to the December 19 mass disturbances criminal case. The press-center of the "Young Front" informs about this.

The youngster was unavailable for 24 hours, and it became known that the Moscow district court of Minsk had sentenced him to 7 days of detention for participation in the peaceful demonstration on December 19 only on Janury 20. Uladzimir Yaromenak already served 15 days of detention for participation in the solidarity action which took place on December 20 at the Independence Square.

An identical situation happened to the "Young Front" activist Julian Misiukevich, who was sentenced to 12 days of detention after the interrogation in the KGB office. His relatives and friends knew nothing about his destiny for more than 24 hours then.
