The Belarusian People’s Front Party has filed a complaint with the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Belarus in connection with actions towards Andrei Ihnatovich, a member of the BPF Party and student of the historical faculty of the Belarusian State University to whom it was proposed to ‘give complete information about the educational measures of the BPF Party and the plans of the Party board on holding mass actions’. These ‘proposals’ were voiced during a talk with the student with the faculty administration that was attended by a worker of the rector’s office Valery Ivanavich (surname unknown). In private, he proposed that A.Ihnatovich provide lists of young members of the BPF Party who participate in various educational measures and any other information relation the activity of the party.

‘The BPF party is of the opinion that these activities contain elements of secret search activity concerning the party’, the complaint reads. The document’s authors also point that only justice organs and prosecutor’s offices can demand from a party to provide information about the activity of a political party and its personal consistence within a framework of audit of activity of the party and its structural subdivisions.

The complaint was signed by the chair of the BPF Party Vintsuk Viachorka.
