Authorities no longer need grounds to detain people

Every single spectator, including Aksana Zaretskaya, a member of the main board of the Coordination Council, were detained during the theatrical performance “White Rabbit, Red Rabbit”. Later, Zaretskaya and some of the detainees (mainly women with minor children) were released pending trial. Head coach of Vityaz handball team and SOS-BY activist Kanstantsin Yakauleu was detained. He, alongside other athletes, was on his way to meet journalist Dzmitry Ruta who was leaving a pre-trial detention centre. Yakauleu’s car was stopped on the highway. He was dragged out of the car and taken away. The other passengers had their documents checked.
