Uladzimir Yaromenak, activist of the Young Front opposition group and former defendant in the White Legion criminal case, has been placed under preventive supervision for the period of six months, Euroradio said.

The restrictions stem from the activist’s alleged failure to serve three days of administrative detention he was awarded for joining a protest against the construction of a business center in the Kurapaty memorial forest in early 2017. The trial took place in his absence.

Yaromenak was later arrested in the framework of so-called White Legion case, but was eventually released without charges.

Now the activist is expected to serve the jail term and will be under movement restrictions. These include a ban on leaving home between 10 pm and 6 am. Three violations of the rules within a year may result in imprisonment.
