New information about the detention of Hrodna journalist Dzyanis Ivashyn has been reported. According to his wife, this is a criminal case.

“They took out all data carriers (phones, laptops and computers), SIM cards, bank cards, books, notebooks, notes, money and various small things like flags, badges, business cards, etc. I was very interested in everything related to Ukraine, although the criminal article in the search warrant is allegedly about the dissemination of personal information,” wrote Volha Ivashyna in her Facebook.

Dzyanis Ivashyn was arrested on the evening of March 12 in his own apartment. The man’s mother said he had been detained by the KGB. The journalist is famous for his investigations for the website “Informnapalm” and the newspaper “Novy Chas”.
