Brest police pay interest to Malei’s solidarity race with Bialiatski
On 11 August captain Mikalai Selivonik, a police
inspector of the Leninski district of Brest, phoned to human rights defender
Uladzimir Malei and stated that he was to visit the police department in
connection with his race along the streets of Brest on 4 August, on the
anniversary of the imprisonment of the head of the Human Rights Center “Viasna”
Mr. Malei held the race wearing a black T-shirt with a portrait of Bialiatski and held another portrait in his hands. He dedicated his race to the imprisoned colleague and all political prisoners in Belarus. Three girls joined Malei’s actions by running several rounds around the monument to the 1000-th anniversary of Brest. Malei’s photos with the girls near the monument were uploaded to the internet and caused the interest of the police.
Uladzimir Malei demanded to be presented official summons. On 13 August captain Selivonchyk handed him a summons to the Leninski District Police Department of Brest for 11 a.m. on 14 August.
