On 27 October, Barysau police raided the apartment of former prisoner of conscience Aliaksandr Malchanau; this was a second search at his residence in 24 hours.

This time, the search was sanctioned by the prosecuting authorities after Barysau court sentenced the activist to 10 days of arrest.

According to Aliaksandr Malchanau’s mother, “it is not clear what they were looking for; they took the postcards of solidarity sent to Aliaksandr when he was in prison; the PC was seized on the previous night.”
