On 16 October, Baranavichy entrepreneur Mikalai Charnavus received a reply from the Central Election Commission secretary Lazavik, following the businessman’s appeal against illegal dispersal of a canvassing picket of Ryhor Kastusiou’s and Yaraslau Ramanchuk’s campaign activists back on 2 October.

‘The police did not restrict the canvassing activities,’ says the official reply. Thus, the Central Election Commission argues that the police did not disperse the picket.

Mikalai Charnavus is indignant at the CEC’s biased reply and says he is going to seek justice at the prosecuting authorities.
