Belarusian Helsinki Committee Babruisk observers were not allowed to attend the meetings of local authorities, where election commissions were formed, despite official applications submitted to the town executive committee.

BHC observer Yauhen Chapuryshkin’s application was not replied by local authorities, as a result he did not manage to sttend the meeting.

On 28 September, the BHC Minsk office received an official reply from Babruisk town executive committee, which claims that observers cannot attend such meetings, since it is ‘illegal’.
