Spanish citizen Inmaculada Gonzales whose boyfriend, Cameroonian Guy Francois Toukam, was detained by the Belarusian border guards more than a month ago, is going to Minsk. She has been driven to such desperation by the inaction of the duty officials of different agencies that she seriously considers holding a picket near the prison in Akrestsin Street, where the goalkeeper of the Norwegian futsal club IOF is still kept.

’He is still kept there. His girlfriend continues writing to us. She is absolutely embarrassed by the whole situation and wants to come here and hold a picket in Akrestsin Street demanding his release,’ commented a lawyer of the HRC Viasna, Valiantsin Stefanovich.

On 12 July, Mr. Stefanovich had a talk with diplomats of the Embassy of the Republic of Cameroon in Moscow. They insisted on having submitted the packet of documents for the release of their compatriot long ago, whereas the Belarusian border guards deny receiving such documents.
