On 11 October he was summonsed to the Baranavichy City Police Department by a telephone call. There he was questioned about the organization and holding of the assembly for about two hours.

After this Viktar was taken to the Court of Baranavichy and the Baranavichy District for a trial on the case that had been brought against him for posting leaflets with invitations to the assembly (Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). The “trial” lasted for several minutes. Judge Aksana Sarakhman fined the activist 350,000 rubles.
