The official warning signed by the deputy prosecutor of the Brest region Aliaksandr Tachko, was issued to the local coordinator of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Aliaksandr Khrapko.

The document, issued to Mr. Khrapko on November 13, states that he is officially warned
"about the inadmissibility of participation in the activities and speeches on behalf of the unregistered party". The officer of the regional prosecutor's office refers to Part 3 of Article 7 of the Law "On Political Parties". It is also stated that the prosecutor's office came to such conclusions on the basis of the materials received from the State Security Committee (KGB). In particular, the Brest activist is accused of taking part in the campaigns for ''For Small Border Traffic'' and "Let's Save Our Children from Alcoholism", initiated by the members of the organizing committee of the BCD.

iaksandr Khrapko says he doesn't see any offense in his actions and believes that the law enforcement agencies have simply decided to intimidate him for promotion the ideas of the Christian Democrats.
