The head of Brest oblast organization of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Hramada) Ihar Maslouski, a candidate for deputy at Brest Eastern electoral constituency #3, applied to Maskouski district police department of Brest in connection with damage of his agitation posters by unknown persons. He also submitted copies of his complaint to the constituency electoral commission and to the OSCE observers.

‘Unknown persons damage my electoral posters on all advertising pillars. It is a violation of Article 45 of the Electoral Code that prohibits to remove the agitation posters, post anything over them, paint them or damage them in any other way if they were produced and put to their places in conformity with the legal requirements,’ commented Ihar Maslouski.

The candidate also attached to his complaint the photos which confirm the damage of his agitation materials. He asks the police find and punish the guilty.
