On 14 September the protestors were summoned to Salihorsk Town Police Board.

Yawhen Valadzko said:
-- At 11 a.m. we came to the police, we had summons with us. Policemen went out and said they would escort us to the court. At the court we solicited for admission of our representative – head of Salihorsk branch of Belarusian Helsinki Committee, Mr. Markhotka. The judge Tatsiana Lapanik didn’t satisfy the petition and fined all of us. She said that yesterday’s action was found illegal and therefore its participants were fined 20 basic values each.
