Belarus' State Security Committee (KGB) has stopped criminal proceedings against Young Front leader Zmicier Dashkevich. He is no longer a suspect in the 'riot case,' Dashkevich learned from the letter from KGB dated June 8.

“They kept me in prison for a month and now they say that I have committed no crime. This is something that has never happened to me at KGB,” the activist wrote on his Facebook account. Dashkevich reckons this is "a small joint victory"; "the big victory will come when all suspects in the riot case that remain behind bars will receive similar letters."

Euroradio reported earlier that another Young Front activist Siarhei Palcheuski was informed by KGB that criminal proceedings against him had been stopped.
