Homel: UCP Activist Forced to Collaborate with KGB
Ivan Siarheieu, an activist of the United Civil Party, student of Homel State Technical University sent a letter to the chair of Hrodna regional KGB office, asking to consider his signature under a collaboration agreement invalid and hold an investigation concerning the persons who introduced themselves as KGB workers and pressurized him.
According to the information of the chair of Homel regional UCP organization Vasil Paliakou, on 22 February unknown persons who introduced themselves as KGB workers, using threats and blackmail, made him sign an agreement to collaborate with KGB. The student says that the two-hour ‘talk’ with them took place at a dean’s office whose door was locked. They threatened him with expulsion from the university. Now the UCP branch also prepares a complaint to prosecutor’s office with the request to stop such illegal actions of KGB workers.
