Members of the Dutch Christian Democratic Party planned to take part in an educational seminar.

They received visas in the Embassy of Belarus in the Netherlands. Two hours later, the activists got a phone call from the Belarusian embassy and were told the immigration service of Belarus annulled their visas, bchd.info reports.

“The ban demonstrates the authorities have a panic fear of all organizations in Belarus calling to boycott. The authorities continue to turn Belarus into a closed ghetto in the centre of Europe. The ban demonstrates the authorities are not going to improve the human rights situation in the country and hold free elections,” co-head of the Belarusian Christian Democracy party Vital Rymasheuski said.
