‘I cannot tell which actions I am complaining about, because I have signed the pledge of secrecy of the investigation materials,’ said Pavel Sapelka.

Bear in mind that the case against Vaukavysk entrepreneur Mikalai Autukhovich was brought in the beginning of February and still hasn’t been passed to court. On 2 June the investigation was extended for another month. The entrepreneur is accused of arson of a policeman’s house though another man has already served punishment for this crime and the victim has no pretensions to Mikalai Autukhovich. The accused has been keeping a hunger-strike since 16 April, demanding either that the case be passed to court or he was released under recognizance not to leave. During the hunger-strike he has lost more than 25 kilograms.
