The Young Front activist will serve his sentence at the Minsk-based Delinquents Isolation Center in Akrestsin Street, the Young Front’s press-service reports.

Uladzimir Yaromenak learned about the verdict when he came to report to the police department of Minsk Pershamaiski district, as he always does on Thursdays. There he was shown a court ruling that he had been punished with an administrative arrest of 12 days for violating preventive supervision restrictions.

Uladzimir Yaromenak has been under preventive restrictions since early 2012, when Pershamaiski district court ruled to impose a preventive surveillance on the activist for a year. Earlier, the activist was repeatedly detained and punished by administrative arrest for participation in actions of solidarity with political prisoners. In 2011, Uladzimir Yaromenak was sentenced to prison term for participating in a protest rally against the results of the presidential elections on 19 December 2010. The activist was released from prison in the late summer of 2011, after he was pardoned by the President.
