The head of the solidarity movement “Razam” Ales Makayeu was tried at the Tsentralny District Court of Minsk for alleged violation of Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Violations. Judge Aliaksandr Yakunchykhin sentenced him to 6 days of imprisonment.

Aliaksandr Makayeu was detained on 23 September while driving to the funeral of civil activist Krystsina Shatsikava. A white-red-white flag was attached to his car. The car was stopped and examined by the traffic police. Leaflets with calls to boycott the parliamentary election were found as a result.

The activist was detained and guarded to the delinquents' isolation center in Akrestsin Street where he spent the night before the trial.
