Brest customs officers confiscated 10 issues of a Belarusian nongovernmental magazine “Arche” yesterday. They were meant for Polish authors of the edition and were supposed to be presented to Polish libraries. A customs officer Renata Nyadbayeva suspected that “the information printed in the magazine may harm the national interests of the Republic of Belarus”. 

“Nasha Niva” notes that issues of “Arche” have been confiscated at the border before. All of them were returned later. The recent confiscation is record. The thing is an issue of the magazine consists of 1082 pages and weighs about a kilo. Customs officers will send “the catch” to an expertise.
