The Minsk office of the Tell the Truth was raided by the police last evening.

The search reportedly dealt with a complaint received from a neighbor. However, the police seized some 40,000 copies of newspapers telling of the campaign’s candidates in the election, some 15,000 copies of the “Civil Contract” newsletter, as well as numerous election campaigning materials. According to Andrei Dzmitryeu, coordinator of the campaign’s election headquarters, the police also confiscated the server.

Andrei Dzmitryeu says the raid is directly linked to the campaign’s active involvement in the elections.
