Leanid Padbiaretski, member of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Hramada) and activist of the Tell the Truth campaign running for Parliament in Mahiliou constituency No. 84, has received an official warning for allegedly staging a picket in an unauthorized place.

The warning issued by the constituency election commission says that the opposition candidate also failed to notify the authorities two days ahead of the picket.

Leanid Padbiaretski was detained by Mahiliou police while staging an election picket on 4 September. He was taken to the police station and faced administrative charges. The charges were later dropped owing to the “insignificance of the offence.”
