"On 4 February I was summonsed to the main police department of the Minsk City Executive Committee.

The senior inspector Aleh Zoshchyk stated that the General Prosecutor's Office had charged them with clearing the circumstances of my visit to the Presidential Administration on 20 December 2012. However, the inspector refused to show me the text of the errand saying that the document was restricted.

I think that this document contains groundless insinuations of workers of the Prosecutor's Office. As far as the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus guarantees the right to freedom of opinion, I refused to comment on their guesses and opinions. I also filed and appeal to the head of the Main Police Department of the Minsk City Executive Committee that the prosecutor's office was exerting psychological pressure on me.

It's worth noting that on 20 December I really paid a visit to the Administration of President of the Republic of Belarus, as far as the head of the administration, Andrei Kabiakou, accepted citizens that day. However, he refused to accept me, though I had filed an appropriate application. I think that the Presidential Administration is a dangerous place for people, as far as its officers intimidate citizens, setting the prosecutor's office and the police against them, instead of solving their issues."
