Anzhalika Borys, chair of the Union of Poles unrecognized by the authorities, was served a notice on 16 November to appear for interrogation with the investigator of Hrodna police Dzmitry Labouski, which lasted for almost three hours. Anzhalika Borys took part in confrontations attended by Kazimier Znaidzinski, one of the deputy chairs of the Unions of Poles recognized by the authorities and the legal adviser of Eduard Kalosh. They argue that Anzhalika Borys handed out to the UPB members humanitarian aid brought from Poland. Ms Borsy said to the investigator that as long as she was the head, the Union of Poles did not receive any humanitarian assistance. The assistance was distributed by Tadeusz Kruczkowski, the then chair of the organization.
Anzhalika Borys also had a meeting with the investigator of the Shchuchyna police Mr. Zaloha, who is in charge of the investigation into the intimidation of Viktar Bohdan, Director of the Polish House in Shchuchyn. The charges leveled against Iuzaf Pazhetski, Anzhalika Borys’s deputy, and his colleagues recognized as suspects by the investigators – the other deputy to Miss Borys Veslau Kieuliak, the senior editor of the Glos znad Niemna Andrzej Pisalnik and the senior editor of the Magazyn Polski Andrei Pachobut. Mr. Zaloha asked whether Anzhalika Borys had personally threatened Mr. Bohdan.
Coming back from the police Anzhalika Borys said that they had exerted powerful psychological pressure on her.
