The men used a can of tear gas and forced Marina to get into a car. On 8 October, she was charged with participation in an unauthorised mass event and sentenced to thirteen days of administrative arrest. She was accused of taking part in an unauthorized demonstration in Minsk on 23 September, despite testimony and evidence that she was in Brest at the time.
