The tax inspection of the town of Rahachou, Homel region, is still harassing local opposition activist Dzianis Dashkevich, former candidate for Parliament in September 2012 elections. The tax authorities demand 600,000 rubles of taxes from the activist.

“Rahachou district executive committee closed down my business back in May 2012. However, they want me to pay taxes for August. Moreover, representatives of the tax inspection who informed about the decision phoned my wife, instead of me,” says Dzianis Dashkevich.

The activist tried to demand explanations from the tax authorities, but failed to receive any information.

“Earlier, when I and my associate Yury Brel were summoned to the tax inspection, I was told that the harassment was ordered by the KGB,” says the activist.

The activist has already been fined 18 mln. for illegal business activities, following his running in the parliamentary elections.
