Barysau district prosecutor’s office has ordered to re-open a criminal investigation against Aliaksandr Malchanau and Andrei Mikalayeuski under Article 370 of the Criminal Code (“desecration of national symbols”).

The charges of alleged abuse of the state flag in central Barysau in October 2011 were dropped in early February 2012 due to lack of evidence, after the investigators failed to prove Malchanau and Mikalayeuski’s guilt of staining the flag with paint in Barysau’s central square.
