Head of Homel branch of Young Front Andrus Tsianiuta received a note signed by KGB investigator D. Sidliarou saying that the criminal charges under Article 193.1 had been finally dropped. The decision is based on Article 259 part 1 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which provides for satisfaction of the petition of the suspect.


About a month ago Andrus Tsianiuta addressed the head of Belarusian KGB Zhadobin with the demand to stop unlawful criminal persecution or send his case to court. The petition was forwarded to Homel prosecutor’s office which satisfied it. Besides that, they will return the seized property.


Andrus says, this way the regime continues the “money” game with the West: “After terrible, and really harsh verdicts to Siarhei Parsiukevich and Andrei Kim, the Belarusian regime needs to demonstrate again that they have not forgotten about “liberalization” and make a “positive” step forward. However, this step is incomparable with the crimes the regime is committing now”.


We should point out that Kiryl Atamanchyk and Arsen Yahorchanka remain suspects in the same case.
