The police and persons in civvies have burst into the apartment of Barysau activist of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party Narodnaya Hramada Alesia Yasiuk for a search.

When Mrs. Yasiuk demanded that they showed to her the warrant, they put her in handcuffs and threatened with punishment of resistance to the police. Alesia thinks that the police are trying to find leaflets and stickers with calls to boycott of the elections in her apartment.

Bear in mind that on 6 July the activist was detained in Minsk with such leaflets. She was completely undressed by a female policeman in presence of male police staff. They even video shot this procedure. Alesia Yasiuk is 48 years old and has 4 children.
