REPORTER FROM ASIPOVICHY DEMANDS RETURN OF HIS PERSONAL PAPERS
Mr. Simbirow, reporter of The Panarama independent newspaper, applied to the prosecutor’s office with the request to return his personal papers, which had been confiscated 2 years ago. Then he was charged with libel in the newspaper. The charge was dropped later, but the confiscated texts of the articles were not returned to the journalist. Mr. Simbirow was quite surprised to receive the prosecutor’s reply, that “… the materials regarding you, which contained appeals to change the constitutional system of the Republic of Belarus, were separated from the case and sent to the KGB”.
