On 10 July Hrodna Leninski Borough Board of Internal Affairs summonsed Anzhalika Borys who is not recognized as the chair of the Union of Poles in Belarus by Belarusian authorities. The reason for the summons was the complaint of Tadevush Kruchkouski, former chair of the Union of Poles, whom the authorities still consider as the chairman.

After 40 minutes at the BBIA Anzhalika Borys said to journalists:
-- I was summonsed to the police on Kruchkouski’s delation. He wrote that the official seal and flags disappeared from the office of the Union of Poles in Hrodna. I had to give explanations. I wrote that in presence of witnesses riot police pulled us out of the office and I left all my belongings there. I also wrote that the computer of a journalist of Gazeta Wyborcza was left at the office as well. The police haven’t returned anything to us and that they didn’t let us in the office.
