Yury Novikau and Halina Lisitsyna, activists of the For Free Elections observation campaign, have lodged a complaint with Mahiliou prosecuting, executive and police authorities, appealing an incident of 23 August when hundreds of election observation materials were seized by the city police from Yury Novikau’s car.

In their appeal, the observers argue that the policemen failed to draft a report during the confiscation. Apart from that, Yury Novikau says the seizure is an outrage against the Electoral Code.
