He may face up to one more year of imprisonment.
The closed trial against the leader of the Young Front will take place in the correctional colony No. 13 in Hlybokaye. A new criminal case was started against him for "malicious disobedience" to the colony's administration.
Let us remind you, the Young Front members Zmitser Dashkevich and Edward Lobau were arrested on December 18, 2010, the day before the presidential election. They were accused of beating two passers-by. Dashkevich was sentenced to 2 years of imprisonment in a minimum security colony.
Dashkevich may face up to one more year of imprisonment for this. At present, the Young Front leader has less than 5 months of detention left.
About 40 witnesses are involved into Dashkevich's case - policemen and prisoners. However, it is unknown whether any of those will witness for him. He refused from the lawyer of defense as he considers the whole trial to be illegal and artificially made-up.
