In the morning of 11 October a public activist Ales Dzerhachou phoned and said that a police car kept duty near his house all night. From time to time the police went out and walked near his windows with pocket flashlights. At 8 a.m. the car changed. The police continue the siege.


Ales Dzerhachou is going to complain to the prosecutor again. The policemen accuse him of having insulted somebody while walking his dog in the morning of 10 October.


In the afternoon of 10 October Dzerhachou closed his door and does not open it to the police. He is sure that they want to isolate him on the eve of the European march to prevent him from participation in it.
