On 19 October, Hrodna court officers broke into the private apartment of Mikhail Vasiliyeu, participant of a “silent protest” of 3 July, to seize property referring to his failure to pay a fine imposed for involvement in the unauthorized rally. Meanwhile, the officers failed to show any papers confirming their authority, simply grabbing Mikhail Vasiliyeu’s personal belongings. As a result, a PC was seized.

A few days later, Mikhail Vasiliyeu was not allowed to regain his property, despite his payment of the above-mentioned fine.
