Leanid Nevar has passed his passport to the passport and migration service because there were no more clean pages for visas. He paid for quick production of a new passport. They were also to transfer the valid permissive seal for foreign travel. 

However, instead of returning the passport by the specified term the passport and migration service said that the document was detained by KGB for a check-up. ‘I have never violated a single law in my life and am indignant at the fact that instead of state security the KGB deals with persecution of innocent citizens’, commented a leader of the entrepreneur’s movement
Leanid Nevar. 

Bear in mind that on 19 September Leanid Nevar was preventively detained before the state celebration Dazhynki and sentenced to 6 days of jail.
