Blogger Grey Cat Summoned To Police
DZMITRY KAZLOU

Dzmitry Kazlou has been sentenced to 105 days of arrest in total.

Blogger Dzmitry Kazlou (Grey Cat), who was released after 25 days of arrest on January 21, was once again summoned to the police. Baran police head Valchkou asked Kazlou to come to get acquainted with the ruling of the court, which had arrived from Minsk. Grey Cat plans to go to the police at 2 p.m. on January 24, spring96.org. reports.

The policeman probably was referring to the ruling of the Maskouski district court of Minsk of December 26, according to which the blogger got another 15 days of arrest. He found out about such a result only on January 23.

According to Kazlou, it's very likely that the police will send him to the detention center to serve the remaining days of arrests, of which 80 are still in force. Grey Cat plans to come to the police with all the necessary things for serving the sentence.

We remind that Dzmitry Kazlou was detained in the evening of January 25. The next day, he was convicted in the Vorsha district court for calling to participate in the rally on December 7 and sent to serve his 15-day arrest. During his detention, he was convicted five more times, and at each trial he was sentenced to another 15 days. In the evening of January 21, the blogger was suddenly released. Kazlou explained that they released him temporarily, saying that disinfection would allegedly take place in the detention center.
