Zmitser Dashkevich, leader of an opposition youth group called Malady Front (Young Front), was released on Monday after serving out a three-day jail sentence.
The 35-year-old activist had been handed the jail term in connection with protests staged at Kurapaty, a site of Stalin-era executions outside Minsk, in February and early March.
Some 20 people, including fellow activists and reporters, gathered outside the detention center on Akrestsina Street in Minsk at noon to meet Mr. Dashkevich, but the activist had already been taken to a police station and released there.
The crowd did not leave and Mr. Dashkevich eventually returned to the scene, getting a warm welcome from associates.
