The people who call themselves representatives of the Ministry of Justice started paying visits to representatives of the electoral team of Vital Rymasheuski.

’They have come to many of us already’, says Taisiya Kabanchuk, the leader of the Babruisk organization of the Belarusian Christian Democracy. ‘They pay visits to the people who are the founders of the BCD party and members of the electoral team and ask them to sign some blanks. They have already come to Sviatlana Abramnikava, Anastasiya Mikhalap, Aliaksandr Siianava and some more people. Our people know about it already and don’t open the doors to them any more.’

Taisa Kabanchuk also reported that people who call themselves members of the Justice Ministry are trying to intimidate people, and sometimes even succeed in it:
’A Babruisk dweller who wouldn’t like her name mentioned, was a member of the electoral team and a founder of the BCD. She works in a state institution, and was the first to be visited by representatives of the Ministry of Justice. They threatened that she would be dismissed from work. As a result of such pressurization she had to write a statement about resignation from the party and the electoral team.’
