Viktar Buzinau, the leader of the UCP (United Civil Party) branch in Babruisk, received a telephone call in the evening of December 26. He was told to appear in a police department next morning.

The activist asked what the matter was and inspector Tarabuyeu answered they had received a ruling of the court on 10-day arrest of the activist over article 23.34. This fact looks more than strange, because the leader of the UCP branch in Babruisk had already served 10 days in custody (from December 3 to 13) on this charge.

As the UCP press service reports, Viktar Buzinau tried to solve the issue explaining he had already served 10 days, but received an answer: “I don’t know anything. You must appear in office Nr 8 tomorrow, otherwise you will be guarded there forcefully.”
