Ivan Bedka, regional coordinator of Vital Rymasheuski's campaign headquarters, on Saturday received an official warning from prosecutor's office in Slonim, Hrodna region, against violation of laws. 

Three prosecutor's office agents in civilian clothes brought the paper to Bedka's home. One of them presented his prosecutor's office ID. The activist has been warned against violating Article 54.1 in Electoral Code of the Republic of Belarus, which deals with mass street actions.

The Slonim prosecutor apparently aimed to prevent the activist from taking place in the protests that are expected to take place in October Square in Minsk on December19. Bedka may face a fine or arrest in case of law violation, according to the warning.
