On 11 March the resident of Masty, activist of the For Freedom movement Ales Zarembiuk spent 2,5 hours at Hrodna oblast KGB office.

He was warned about possible punishment for violating article 342 of the Criminal Code, ‘Organization and preparation of the actions that grossly violate the public order’. The KGB workers showed to him the photos from celebration of the Freedom Day on 25 March 2007 in Svislach and from Milinkevich’s meeting with the electorate in Masty on 4 November 2007. Zarembiuk could be seen at both actions.

The KGB investigator captain Zhyvushka proposed that Zarembiuk signed the explanatory note that was composed from his own words, but the activist refused to do it. According to Radio Racyja, it is already the second time Ales is summonsed to the KGB office. The first time he had to go there last year, in connection with a criminal case against the underground youth organization Young Front.
