All in all, 16 punctures were counted at the service station.

“The incident took place on September 8. While returning home from work my mother noticed that my car was standing not on tires, but on wheel disks. September 9 I appealed to the police in connection with the incident,” says Ihar Barysau.

The social democrat says that the “Audi” car belongs to the family, and he also uses it from time to time. The car was in the parking lot and didn't create obstacles to anyone. Other cars weren't damaged.

“A few days before the incident, officers of security services came to my mother's work and asked whether her labor contract would be extended However, they came one day late. This case was reported to the website of the Human Rights Center “Viasna”. The punctured tires can be a revenge for giving publicity to the information about the visit of the KGB officers to my mother's work,” adds Mr. Barysau.

Bear in mind that the law machinery started paying a vigilant attention to the deputy chair of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party after he was detained in July 2014 by road policemen with the circulations of the independent newspapers “NASH Mahiliou” and “Social Democrat”. All in all, the police seized 11,800 copies of the printed editions from him The court ruled in favor of confiscating the press, and imposed a find of 4.5 million rubles on the defendant. The verdict is being appealed at the Mahiliou Regional Court.
