Aleh Zubrytski, a resident of Minsk, was sentenced to three years of restricted freedom in an open-type correctional facility under Article 364 of the Criminal Code (violence or threat of violence against an officer of internal affairs).
Aleh was tried for sending a threatening SMS to the wife of a riot policeman Hanna Navumchyk on 14 August 2020. Zubrytski told the court that he did not send that text message, and his defense attorney pointed at the lack of evidence.
On 1 July 2021, he began serving his sentence.
