Case of Mikola Dziadok. The chronicle
In the evening on November 11th, the well-known Belarusian blogger, anarchist and political analyst Mikola Dziadok was detained. We provide coverage of the events.
The anarchist is planned to be transferred to the Pre-Trial Detention Cener №1 on Valadarskaha Street in Minsk (the capital of Belarus). Many well-known Belarusian political prisoners are already being held there: bloggers Eduard Palčys, Aliaksandr Kabanaū and Siarhej Piatruhin, politician Pavel Seviarynec and others.
The man was beaten brutally in Minsk in a temporary detention center on Akreścina Street. He underwent his first interrogation with a lawyer. She filed a petition with the investigator for Dziadok’s medical examination, as well as for a forensic examination. The condition of the civic activist on the video from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus shows that he was tortured.
His telegram channel MIKOLA was hacked by the police and a post of an offensive nature was issued aimed at the protest movement and the blogger himself. Later, the YouTube channel of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus published a video in which Mikola Dziadok, who was severely beaten and probably poisoned with pepper gas, confessed to administering anarchist telegram channels. The video itself received great publicity, because it shows that the right words were extorted under torture of him.
On the same day, it became known that the 32-year-old activist was detained in a safe house in the Asipovičy district of the Minsk region. According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, foreign bank cards, a couple of thousand euros, Molotov cocktails and protest paraphernalia were found there. The press service claims that the suspect received funding from the European Union to destabilize the situation in the country, and received the money to pay Belarusians for participating in protests.
Mikola’s comrades created a new channel instead of the hacked one.
On the evening of November 11th, communication with him was broken.
On August 8th officers of the Interior Ministry’s Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime and Corruption (GUBAZIK) carried out a search at the place of residence of Mikola and his girlfriend. At the time the first criminal case was initiated against him. However, unlike other activists with a similar fate, the anarchist decided to stay in Belarus and was more than five months in hiding (farsightedly starting from June, when the first detentions of bloggers began). At the same time, he actively participated in protests, promoted Belarusian agenda among domestic and foreign media and wrote political analysis.
Mikola Dziadok is suspected of violating Article №342 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus “On the organization and preparation of actions that grossly violate public order”. He faces up to three years in prison.
In 2010, Mikola Dziadok was detained in connection with an attack on the Embassy of the Russian Federation, but pleaded not guilty. He served almost five years as a political prisoner. Later he lived in Minsk, Vilnius and Kaunas. He graduated from the European Humanities University with a degree in International Politics and Economics. He was a journalist, blogger, civic activist and political analyst.
