Dzmitry Salauiou, a human rights activist in Navapolatsk, summoned to procurator’s office
On 15 February 2005 Dzmitry Salauiou, a human rights activist in Navapolatsk, was summonsed to the procurator’s office of Navapolatsk, where he was requested to provide explanations regarding his human rights activity and the release of the “Our Right” bulletin.
A statement issued by Aliaxandr Kamarou, Chair of Navapolatsk Town Executive Committee, had been the reason. The statement argues that the human rights bulletin “Our Right” widely distributed in Navapolatsk says that Salauiou will help people restore their violated rights free of charge. The Town Executive Committee requests that the Procurator’s Office look into it and give a legal evaluation of what Salauiou has done. Dzmitry Salauiou has refused to answer any questions, resorting to the protection provided by Article 27 of the Constitution of Belarus.
The interesting thing is that the issue of the “Our Right” which caused the Town Executive Committee to act in such a nervous way covered the events in Ukraine, giving a detailed account of falsification of the elections attempted by Yanukovich and of the decisive response of the Ukrainian people.
