Members of Monitoring Mission from Human Rights Center “Viasna” Complain agaisnt Illegal Detention
More than 70 persons were detained during the organizational briefing of ENEMO (European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations) that was conducted on 22 December in “Belarus” hotel.
-- We were detained in Minsk Tsentralny Borough Board of Internal Affairs for much more than three hours for which the law allows to detain us without composition of protocols of administrative detention, till our train to Kyiv, (the capital of the Ukraine) departed. The police composed no protocols. Of course, it was illegal detention and we complain against it to prosecutor’s office. It will be very interesting for me to read what prosecutor’s office would answer to such evident violation of the Code of Administrative Violations, -- said the lawyer of Human Rights Center “Viasna”.
About ten complaints were filed to Minsk Tsentralny Borrough Prosecutor’s Office.
