A resident of the town of Krychau Mikalai Fedarenka has filed an appeal to the prosecutor of the Mahiliou region against unlawful actions of police inspector of the Krychau District Police Department, senior lieutenant U. Krautsou.

Mikalai Fedarenka accuses the lieutenant of having sent a fictitious explanation on a civic case on his behalf on March 22, 2014. This fictitious explanation contains the words “it was properly recorded from my words” and Fedarenka's signature, forged by an unidentified individual. Mr. Fedarenka states he didn't meet with any officers of the Krychau DPD either on March 22, 2014 or any other day, which can be verified by examining the register of visitors of the Krychau DPD.

Mikalai Fedarenka also states that the explanatory note, allegedly compiled from his words, contains many inaccuracies which he couldn't provide or undersign. He believes that the actions of the police inspector fall under the Article 427 of the Criminal Code (
forgery by a state official).

Therefore, Mikalai Fedarenka asks the prosecutor of the Mahiliou region to inspect the indicated violations of the law and hold the police liable under the law, as well as to give him a written response within the statutory time limit.
