On April 24, Pavel Vinahradau visited the police department of Minsk’s Maskouski district to check in on the last day of preventive supervision imposed on him for his civil activity. However, the staff told him that the period of restrictions might be extended.
On April 25, it has been reported that the preventive supervision period was extended by six months. The decision was enforced by the court of Maskouski district.
“And they made it clear that I should either tomorrow leave for Berazino until June 3, or go to prison in Akrestsin Street. And I choose Berazino,” wrote the activist on his Facebook account.
Pavel Vinahradau is one of the first activists to be convicted in the December 2010 case. He was released early, but was immediately put on preventive supervision. During this time, the activist was repeatedly subjected to administrative liability for his public activity.
