On 15 January 2013 Pershamaiski District Court of Minsk found the "Young Front" activist Uladzimir Yaromenak guilty of a repeated violation of the norms of preventive supervision and punished with 12 days of arrest.

However, the activist wasn't present at the trial as he hadn't been duly informed about it. As a result, Mr. Yaromenak's legal right to defense was violated.

On 26 February Minsk City Court considered his appeal and turned down the verdict of Pershamaiski District Court and returned the case for re-consideration by another judge.
