Former Polish leader given second jail term

From BBC News:

A leader of Belarus' ethnic Polish minority has been given a second 15-day prison term, in an apparent escalation of tension with the authorities.
Tadeusz Gawin, the former head of the Union of Poles, was accused of beating his cell mate - a claim he denies.

He was initially jailed for 15 days for arranging a meeting between a visiting Polish MP and ethnic Polish activists.
