BCD Mahiliou activist receives second warning from KGB
The KGB Mahiliou office employees once again argue that a BCD activist Aleh Aksionau has been acting on behalf of an unregistered organization.
In the morning of April 29 he received a phone call from KGB investigator Makhunou, who invited him to a meeting at the KGB office. A few minutes later the activist received a writ, saying that he should appear for a conversation at 12 a.m.
Chairman of the Mahiliou regional office of the Belarusian Popular Front “Adradzhenne” Dzmitry Salauyou was not allowed acting as a public representative of Aleh Aksionau during his visit to the KGB department.
The conversation lasted for about an hour.
During his visit, the BCD activist was told that the reason for his placement in a preventive register was acting on behalf of an unregistered organization, the Belarusian Christian Democracy party, and activities in the non-registered organizations – election observation campaign “For Fair Elections” and Mahiliou regional coalition of democratic forces.
“As evidence Makhunou showed me printouts from various websites that mention my name. He also asked me why I went to Norway. I tried to convince the investigator that the BCD party was acting on behalf of its organizing committee, but he refused to understand,” says Aleh Aksionau.
It should be noted that apart from Aleh Aksionau, the KGB Mahiliou office applied preventive supervision to Tatsiana Shambalava, BCD activist, and chairman of Mahiliou regional office of the Belarusian Popular Front “Adradzhenne” Dzmitry Salauyou.
