Prison: Pre-trial detention center No. 7
Tsimur Ryzapur was detained on September 30 and accused of participating in riots on the evening of August 10 in Brest under Part 2 of Art. 293 of the Criminal Code. The 37-year-old taxi driver was returning home from work on the evening of August 10, but was shot with rubber bullets five times. The investigator explains his choice of pre-trial detention by the fact that Tsimur Ryzapur does not have a Belarusian citizenship, despite the fact that he has a residence permit and has been living in Belarus for about 23 years.
