Another film from the "Judgment Days Chronicle" has been published on the web. The documentary is dedicated to a victim of political repressions, the leader of the youth organization "Zmena" Pavel Vinahradau.

Pavel Vinahradau was arrested in the aftermath of the peaceful post-election protests of 19 December 2010, in the night of 4-5 January 2011. His apartment was searched in his absence, after which he was charged under parts 1 and 2 of Article 293 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus ("organization of and participation in mass riot"). He was kept in the pre-trial prison #1 in Minsk before the trial.

On 5 May 2011 Pavel Vinahradau was sentenced to 4 years of imprisonment and transferred to the penal colony "Vouchyia Nory". On 14 September 2011 was released on a pardon decree, signed by the incumbent president.

Pavel remains politically active. On 30 December 2011 he was detained for an alleged disorderly conduct at the police department to which he had been invited for a "prophylactic talk". That's why he met the New Year in prison, serving a 7-day arrest (though the court ruling on his case was issued only on 2 January 2013). He went on a hunger-strike of protest against the unlawful detention and imprisonment.
