The incident took place in a subway pedestrian crossing short before the departure of a lawyer Ihar Rynkevich to his client. While going for a meeting with Aliaksandr Kazulin’s brother Uladzimir Mr. Rynkevich was approached by a man in sportive closes, about 30 years old. ‘Lawyer, you won’t manage to arrive to your pig today’. On saying this, the man quickly went away.

‘I came to my car, left my bag there and Uladzimir Kazulin and I tried to find that man. However, we didn’t succeed. A controller of the tube station let us come to the platform, but a train was already departing. Nevertheless, she said to us, that similar persons had come to the platform showing certificates of law machinery workers,’ Ihar Rynkevich said.

Mr. Rynkevich reported the incident to the police patrol of the tube station. ‘I took this threat seriously as we had to make some 300 kilometers by our car to visit Aliaksandr Kazulin. I also agreed to give more detailed explanations concerning the threats on coming back from my defendant,’ said Rynkevich.
