Hrodna: harassment of civil activists continues
Civil and political activists are still detained in Hrodna. In the morning the road police stopped the car by which a member of the For Freedom movement Ales Zarembiuk, the head of Hrodna city organization of the Belarusian Popular Front Party Vadzim Saranchukou and the head of Hrodna oblast organization of the Belarusian Social Democratic Hramada Viktar Sazonau were driving. The car was guarded to the building of the narcological dispensary.
After awhile the representative of the United Democratic Forces were released. However, on the way to (Druskeniki) Lithuania the car was stopped again right after it entered the border zone. A personal search of Viktar Sazonau was performed, without explanation of the reasons. Ales Zarembiuk’s car was detained on the border for more than an hour. Only then the regional leaders were allowed to go to Lithuania.
