Homel: BAJ Member Iulia Salnikava Appeals Illegal Actions of Prosecutor’s Office
On 1 February in Homel a member of the Belarusian Association of Journalists Iuliia Salnikava was summonsed to the prosecutor’s office as a witness. However, the case on which Iu.Salnikava was to have been interrogated was not mentioned in the text of the summons. That’s why she phoned to Homel regional prosecutor’s office and asked about it. However, prosecutor Ieliseieu refused to tell the reason for the summons and said he would explain everything would she come to the prosecutor’s office.
On 2 February Iu.Salnikava filed a complaint to the main prosecutor of Homel region instead. She asks him to check-up this fact and give a legal evaluation to such actions of the prosecutor’s office.
‘I am of the opinion that the investigator Ieliseieu’s refusal to explain to me the reasons for summoning me to the prosecutor’s office on unknown case is lawless and violates my rights and legal interests,’ wrote Iuliia Salnikava in her complaint.
