According to Anatol Sanantsenka, editor-in-chief of the Babruiski kurier independent newspaper, a letter by Babruisk Leninski borough prosecutor’s office in reply to his complaint states that ‘Fingerprinting is a voluntary examination aimed at assisting the investigation in detecting the crime and a ‘civic duty’ which you refused to do. However you will not be prosecuted under existing legislation.’

As we reported before, Anatol Sanatsenka was visited by Babrusik town police and recommended to undergo fingerprinting on 12 November 2008. After that Sanatsenka lodges a claim against the illegal actions by the police and had to wait two months for a reply from the local prosecutor’s office.
