Valiantsina Panfila, a public activist from Brest, has been waiting for the return of her system unit for two months already. The police repeatedly promised to return it after it was found that the woman had no relation to the virus attack on the newspaper computers.

The system unit was taken away by two police officers, one of whom was a senior operative of the police department of the Brest Regional Executive Committee, Major Andrei Hlinski. Valiantsina Panfila was most angered by the fact that while taking away the system unit in the presence of witnesses Major Hlinski said he could also find some drugs in her apartment.

The activist has already applied to the Liakhavichy District Prosecutor's Office and the local police for assistance, but hasn't received any results.

Bear in mind that on 22 June a virus attack had been conducted on the website of the newspaper “Nasha Niva”. The unidentified persons attached a virus to one of its headings, after which the website was blocked. On 24 June the situation repeated on 28 June the chief editor of the edition Andrei Skurko filed an appeal to the Kastrychnitski District Police Department of Minsk and the MIA department of the disclosure of crimes. The real criminals are still to be found.
