Katsiaryna Barysevich is a TUT.BY reporter arrested on November 19 on suspicion of alleged disclosure of a medical secret of Raman Bandarenka, who was beaten to death on November 11 (Part 3, Article 178 of the Criminal Code). In a piece she authored, she cited the doctor’s words alleging absence of alcohol in Raman’s blood, which contradicted the official statements earlier voiced by the authorities.
Katsiaryna was initially held in the KGB pre-trial prison in Minsk.
