Dzmitry Shurkhai, an activist of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy, was driving to Poland for private affairs through the Warsaw Bridge border checkpoint.

The BCD press service reports he was detained for five hours, from 5 to 10 a.m. Border guards strip searched the politician and searched his car. Shukhrai says he was ordered to remove almost all clothes.

People in civilian clothes watched the search. They said they were migration service officers, but the activists does not rule out they might be KGB agents.
