Zhlobin member of the "Fair World" Ilona Tkachova still hasn't been returned her laptop and photo camera which have been confiscated at the Belarusian-Ukrainian border.

"In fact, all legal terms have expired, but I hasn't been even given any answer to my appeals to the head of the customs office", says the activist. "However, I don't have enough time to go to the customs office and clear all circumstances".

Bear in mind that on 6 December 2012 Ilona, her husband and son were returning to Belarus after a holiday in Egypt and were detained and searched by the Belarusian customs officers at the border crossing point "Novaya Huta". As a result, a laptop and a photo camera were confiscated from Ilona Tkachova. The activist filed an appeal to the head of the customs office but still hasn't received any answer.
