Aliaksandr Piatnitski was detained after the end of the People’s Assembly held in Minsk on 12 November. He was charged with insubordination to lawful demands of police officers (Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Violations) and sentenced to 10 days of arrest.

Bear in mind that Piatnitski has already served two arrest terms this year – 10 days for participation in the protest rally on 10 December 2010 and 12 days – for the silent protest action of 3 July 2011.
