According to

‘I was returning from Bialystok (Poland). Belarusian border guards took away my passport and took me to a separate carriage. At the railway they examined my belongings and checked my clothes and shoes. They informed me that I was included in some special lists’, said Pavel Mazheika.

Besides the personal examination, the border guards made a Xerox copy of the international journalist certificate and the certificate of member of Milinkevich’s initiative group that belonged to Pavel Mazheika, saying these documents were forged.

The press-secretary of Milinkevich’s headquarters intends to complain against the actions of the border guards to the head of the border guards A.Paulouski and ask why he was detained.
