Despite Christmas, Belarusian law-enforcement agencies keep raiding opposition offices and apartments of civil and political activists, adding to the increasing atmosphere of fear in the society.

We would like to inform that earlier reports on searches in the private apartment of Viasna’s activist Tatsiana Reviaka proved to be false.

At the same time, dozens of apartments and offices have been searched by the police and the KGB across Belarus today, including those of former presidential candidate Ales Mikhalevich’s wife, Charter ’97 editor Natallia Radzina’s mother, Iryna Khalip’s father and pro-democratic activist Viachaslau Siuchyk.

At about 12.00 Maladechna KGB searched the private apartment of local human rights defender Aliaksei Kaputski. Later they searched his office.

Apart from that, Minsk KGB searched the private apartment of human rights activist Aleh Vouchak.
