Zmitser Dashkevich sentenced to three days of arrest
“Young Front” members have been gathering signatures for renaming Lenin Street to Frantsyskanskaya Street (the historical name) near the central department store for the third day already.
The collection of signatures was held within the framework of the de-Communisation campaign, launched by the “Young Front”. There were no incidents during the first two days of the campaign.
“Today, I have received a telephone call from Zmitser Dashkevich, who said that he was in a bus, being taken to the Tsentralny District Police Department of Minsk. As far as I could understand, he sent all other people away and was there alone,” said Zmitser's wife, Nasta Dashkevich.
As it became known later, the activist was charged under Article 23.4 of the Administrative Code, “insubordination to the police” and taken to the Tsentralny District Court of Minsk. Judge Valery Yesman found him guilty and sentenced him to three days of arrest.
Zmitser Dashkevich is one of the co-heads of the “Young Front”. He was released from jail in August 2013, after spending 32 months in jail. After the release from jail, preventive police supervision was established over him.
