An independent journalist Hanna Iliina accuses police major Siarhei Andreyenka of illegal detention and violence. Today the forensic experts of Mahiliou have registered several haematomas on Illina’s body. 

On 30 August Iliina and six more people were detained in a forest not far from Mahiliou while celebrating a birthday. According to the journalist, major Andreyenka hit her in the back and in the neck several times when she asked him about the reason for the detention. 

Today Hanna Iliina has applied to the prosecutor’s office to bring the bold policeman to account for excess of the duty powers.
