Persecution of Public Activists Still Continues
Today the head of Zhodzina organization of Belarusian People’s Front Aliaksey Lapitski has been summoned to the police by a telephone call. The police demanded from him to explain the appearance of the fly-sheets of the People’s Coalition “5+” in Zhodzina. They were interested to find where did the fly-sheets come from and whether he had any relation to them.
On 15 July the police phoned to the BPF office in Zhodzina with the same questions.
Aliaksey Lapitski refused to give explanations, referring to Article 27 of the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus and received a call-up to the police for 17 July 2004.
