On 1 October the the Baranavichy human rights defenders Sarhei Housha and Karnei Piatrovich applied to the Deputy Chairperson of the Baranavichy Town Executive Committee Dz. Kastsiukevich with the request to provide them with information about the place of work of each member of the Baranavichy Town Election Commission, because state officials cannot constitute more than 1/3 of a territorial election commission, and the implementation of this legal norm couldn’t be verified without such information.

However, in his answer #01-15/846 of 4 October Dz. Kastsiukevich refused to provide the requested data, stating that such demands exceeded the norms of the Electoral Code and weren’t connected to the preparation and holding of elections.

On 7 October the human rights defenders addressed the Baranavichy prosecutor with a complaint against the actions of Mr. Kastsiukevich, asking to give a legal evaluation to them.
