On 7 April, human rights defender Uladzimir Krauchanka received a letter from the Mahiliou regional election commission, signed by its Chairperson, N.V.Belanohau. The official apologizes for the ‘technical’ mistake made in the previous answer to Krauchanka (let us remind that from that answer it followed that the regional election commission was established on 27 December 2010).

Mr. Belanohau informed the human rights defender that the commission was established on 27 January 2010 (which corresponds to the timing schedule of the election measures) and the appropriate information was posted at the website of the Mahiliou regional executive committee in the Elections section on 28 January 2010.

’It is a usual falsification’, says the human rights defender, ‘bold and shameless lies. What technical mistake can they speak of, if the information was published at the official website almost a month before the appointment of the elections and one of the members confirmed the fact of its establishment in December 2009 in a private talk?’

Bear in mind that yesterday the date of the information 58 constituencies for election to the Mahiliou regional Council of Deputies of the 26 Convocation were established in the region was considerably shortened and its date was changed from 28 December 2009 to 2 February 2010.
