In Hrodna there was brought a criminal case for falsification of the signatures for nomination of Aliaksandr Kazulin candidate to the presidential position of the Republic of Belarus. One of the witnesses in the case is the fourth-year student of Hrodna University Iulia Kasper, who coordinated the collection of signatures for Mr Kazulin. A policeman took her to interrogation right from classes. At the police she was informed that there were testimonies of students that some of the collected signatures were forged. Iulia Kasper was advised to cooperate with the police and give true testimony. They threatened that otherwise he can face problems at the place of study, turn into an accused and can be put into isolator.

Having obtained the procurator’s warrant, the police also searched her room in the student dormitory, exacted 12 applications about entering the now non-existent organization Young Social Democrats and some notebooks (for identification of Iulia’s handscipt, she thinks). On the eve of the search the room was also witnessed by two persons in plain clothes in absence of the owner. When they went away they left the door open.

Iulia Kasper has prepared a complaint to Hrodna Regional Procurator’s Office against the lawless actions of the police.
