Babruisk: Anatol Sanatsenka appeals against unlawful visits of police
Anatol Sanatsenka, chief editor of the “Babruiski Kur’er” newspaper,
applied to the procuracy with the request to explain the reasons why police
officers paid visits to the houses of local journalists and civil activists.
“Policemen paid a visit to my apartment on 29 December 2011. They paid similar visits to other people earlier or later. There were four of them: two were dressed in the police uniform, and two more – in plain clothes. Pitifully enough, I didn’t manage to find about the reasons of their visits, being absent from home. However, from the sources which I prefer not to call, I learned that the police had some “black list” with surnames of Babruisk journalists and civil activists and such visits are actually unlawful “prophylactic check-ups”.
In his apply to the procuracy Mr. Sanatsenka asked it to explain the aims of such visits and check the information about the black lists. On 11 January he was summonsed to senior assistant prosecutor of the Leninski District of Babruisk, Volha Ivanova. She explained that special documents must be composed concerning the people who are subject to prophylactic control. Now Anatol Sanatsenka is waiting for an official answer from the procuracy.
