Prosecutor’s Office Warns RFE/RL Journalist Alherd Neviarowski
The reason for the warning was the article that was put to the site of Radio Liberty with the photos that were made at a polling station during the early voting at the parliamentary election. In the article it was stated that the electors were given referendum ballots with positive vote already standing there. In the prosecutor’s office the journalist was informed that the information he distributed was allegedly wrong: these were ballots for parliamentary election and the absence of the candidate V. Palevikova was marked there. The workers of the office familiarized Neviarowski with article 40 of the “Law on press and other mass media” and warned about the necessity to check information, saying that in the case of repetition of such a case the journalist could be deprived of accreditation.
