Belarusian blogger Svetlana Kalinkina writes that on December 21 a court in Minsk heard a case against one S.V. Antonov, accused of attending an unsanctioned protest and chanting "antigovernment" slogans.
Kalinkina writes that when the man was asked if he agreed with the charges, he couldn't answer.
Antonov is a deaf-mute.
The case was put on hold. Antonov was sent back to jail. And the police were sent "to look into the case further."
