Andrei Byalyauski who was investigated in the White Legion case stood a fresh trial in Minsk's Leninski District Court.
Andrei Byalyauski who was involved in the White Legion case on 11 January stood another trail in Minsk's Leninski District Court. He pled guilty of illegal possession of a service cartridge.
Andrei Byalyauski: “I bought a Grand Cherokee in Recyca in early summer of 2013 and brought the car to Minsk. Several weeks had passed until I found that cartridge. I found it under the back seat. I decided to keep it as a souvenir and brought home. I did not plan to use it.”
Byalyauski’s mother refused to testify in court.
Byalyauski was detained in March 2017 (KGB found the cartridge in his flat during a search). He spent 2.5 months in jail as a person involved in the so-called “White Legion case”. The case was closed later. Byalyauski was accused of preparing a mass riot and setting up an illegal armed unit. Other people involved in that case were also present in the court room: Miraslau Lazouski, Victar Danilau and Andrei Komlik-Yamatsin.
