Aliaksandr Kirylau, Vitsebsk activist of the unregistered Belaya Rus Conservative Christian Party, has received an official warning of possible administrative prosecution in case he stages a picket against unemployment.

The activist was visited by representative of ideology department of the city’s Kastrychnitski District administration, who said he would be arrested as soon as he appeared in central Vitsebsk to protest against harassment he reportedly faced when trying to find job through local employment office.

The alleged fact of pressure has already been appealed in court.
