On October 12, at about 10.40, when Uladzislau Kazakevich was being taken for a walk in the Shklou penal colony No. 17, during the standard screening procedure, the metal detector went off in the area of his left sleeve.
"The convict was asked to give the prohibited object away, but he, without fulfilling the demands of the military squad, whipped away with his right hand a hand-made knife from his sleeve and tried to attack a colony administration officer. Convicted Uladzislau Kazakevich was disarmed due to the professional, competent actions of the military squad head – senior supervising officer Aliaksei Kuzan, and the military squad personnel," – the Interior Ministry spokesman Kanstantsin Shalkevich informed.
Currently, the investigative and operational group is working on the scene.
