Human Rights Center Viasna found that on 12 January Orsha city court sentenced a youth activist Siarhei Huminski to three days of arrest. We should remind that several days ago he was severely beaten by the police for principled speaking in Belarusian and appealed this fact to the prosecutor’s office. Today he has been summonsed to the police again and reports for violations of article 156 and 166 of the Administrative code (petty hooliganism and disobedience to legal demands of the police) were drawn on him. S.Huminski has declared a hunger-strike of protest.
