On 11 May "Young Front" activist Mikhail Muski was to have been released from jail after serving 15-day arrest term. However, instead he was taken to the Maskouski District Court of Minsk and sentenced to 5 days arrest for "disorderly conduct" (Article 17.1 of the Code of Administrative Violations) by Judge Viktar Kazak. Testimonies were given by police officers A. Davidziuk and S. Savuhin. According to the detention report, he was detained near "Altair" shop.

The real reason for the arrest is not to leave the activist any chances to appeal against the unlawful draft to the army: on 14 May he must be sent to a military unit as a soldier.
