Vitsebsk: police hold check-up concerning forgery of signatures by campaign team of Uladzimir Pravalski
District Election Commission received the greatest number of signatures in
support of Uladzimir Pravalski – more than 100,000. According to the official
information of the commission, the signature sheets that were passed to it by
the campaign team don’t look as real even at first look. That’s why they were
passed to the Pershamaiski District Police Department of Vitsebsk that holds a
check-up. The police experts have already discovered that a part of the
signature sheets had been produced with the use of Xerox.
All signatures that had been collected in support of Mr. Pravalski in Vitsebsk were declared invalid.
Uladzimir Pravalski refuses to give any commentaries, saying he needs to familiarize with the documents according to which he is accused of the forgery and receive the official ruling of the Central Election Commission.
