Lawyer of Belarusian opposition figure Znak appeals against client's detention - Reports

Minsk, Sep 11 (Sputnik) Dmitry Laevsky, the lawyer of a senior member of the coordination council of the Belarusian opposition, Maksim Znak, filed a complaint with the court through the investigative committee about his client's detention, Belarusian media reported on Friday.
On Wednesday, Znak was detained in Minsk as part of the criminal case into the opposition's calls for a coup in the republic. On Monday, as part of the same case, the Belarusian authorities detained Maria Kolesnikova, a member of the opposition council's presidium, while she was trying to enter Ukraine. Two other opposition figures - Anton Rodnenkov and Ivan Kravtsov - have managed to flee Belarus.
According to the tut.by news portal, a detention complaint must be transferred by the investigating authority to the court within three days after the detention, which also has three days to consider it.
