The Young Front office was searched yesterday. Office equipment and informational materials, calling to boycott the parliamentary “elections”, were seized.

As one of the Young Front leaders Artur Finkevich told to the Charter’97 press center, people in civvies watched outside the building of the office on Karol Street for more than an hour and tried to force the door. After 10.00 pm KGB officers managed to enter the office: they burst into it when one of the members of the organisation tried to leave the office.

During a search, conducted by KGB and militia officers, office equipment, stickers, information materials, posters, calling to boycott the “elections” were seized. The activists, who were in the apartment, weren’t allowed to phone.
