Today the first political activists detained under suspicion of their relation to the 4th of July blast will be released. Viktar Liashchynski, Siarzhuk Chyslau, and several others will return home.


Let us remind the readers: on july 6th and 7th KGB officers searched the apartments of the people, who, in their mind, could have a elation to producing of a bomb. After the searches they were interrogated and detained for three days. When the term of the detention passed, it was continued to 10 days.


The investigators do not give the exact number of people detained as suspects in the criminal case. We know that there are people of different layers of society on that list – from chemistry students to “disloyal’ elements.
