According to RFE/RL

In the morning of 19 March in Minsk the police tried to get into the flat that is rented by the Assembly of Belarusian NGOs. They said they had information that there were terrorists, firearms or explosives inside. They had no warrant for the search. The activist of the electoral headquarters of A.Milinkevich Iury Chavusau refused to open the door. Only after the OSCE observers and journalists arrived, the police agreed that the flat be examined by the renter, Iury Chavusau, and as neighbor. They examined the apartment, then went out and said there were no terrorists and firearms. Iury Chavusau considers this incident as an attempt of intimidation.
