On 15 November the youth activist Pavel Krasouski was summoned to the Organized Crime control department in Vitsebsk. The senior investigator of the republican Prosecutor’s office Aliaksandr Rasolka told Pavel Krasouski that the materials of experts’ examinations confirm his not being implicated in rapes and murders.

The lawyer Pavel Sapelka told to RFE/RL that dismissing these charges is the first step for freeing Krasouski from all charges. Though Pavel as before remains a suspect in the case of Vitsebsk blasts, the activist of the Young Front and his lawyer are hoping that this charge would be dismissed as well.

Pavel Krasouski was a suspect in a number of hard crimes: in implication in organizing blasts on 14 and 22 September 2005 in Vitsebsk, and in rapes and murders of two girls in 1999. The activist has spent 10 days in a remand prison in Vitsebsk.
