Siarhei Serhiyenka, UDF candidate in 35th election district was summoned today to Savetski district police department of Homel. In the summons, signed by senior officer E. Masliukou, Serhiyenka’s status was indicated as a “witness”. At the same time, the case in which Serhiyenka was supposed to testify, was not mentioned. The investigator who talked with the witness asked questions about the blast on July 3rd: where Serhiyenka was in the night of the blast, and if he had a car. The investigator failed to register Serhiyenka’s answers in a protocol. According to Serhiyenka, the investigator did not compose any reports of the conversation at all. The only document which Serhiyenka signed was an id card after dactyloscopy.  
- I think this has nothing to do with the election, -- Serhiyenka said. – Most probably, that was because I work with chemical substances in Homel Medical University.
