Mahiliou: Aleh Aksionau appeals KGB actions at court
Aleh Aksionau filed a complaint against
the illegal activities of the Mahiliou
Regional KGB Department
to the Leninski
District Court of Mahiliou. The
activist of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian
Democracy asks the court to abolish the warning, issued to him by KGB
and consider the prophylactic conversation, held by a KGB officer, as
illegal and unjustified.
Aleh Aksionau also demands written apologies from the head of the Mahiliou Regional KGB Department and oral apologies from the KGB officer Makhunou.
Bear in mind that on 29 April the KGB officer Makhunou summonsed Aleh Aksionau to the KGB headquarters for a prophylactic talk. During the "conversation" Makhunou told the activist that he was warned for alleged activities on behalf of an unregistered organization – the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy, as well as for participation in the activities of the two unregistered organizations – the civil campaign "For Fair Elections-2012" and the Mahiliou regional coalition of democratic forces.
He presented print-outs from independent web-sites, where the activist's name was mentioned, as evidence. Aleh Aksionau has been under the prophylactic supervision of the KGB for more than a year already. In the Mahiliou region, preventive supervision has been also established over an activist of the BCD Tatsiana Shambalava and the leader of the Mahiliou regional organization of the Belarusian Popular Front "Adradzhenne" Zmitser Salauyou.
