On 12 May the Salihorsk democratic activist Pavel Batuyeu was summonsed to the department of financial investigations of the State Control Committee in connection with the investigation into the case of the website knihi.net.

In the beginning of 2010 there were rumors that the Belarusian KGB started paying interest to the website because of distributing the book Maladafrontautsy. Mr. Batuyeu was summonsed to the State Control Committee for the first time a year ago. The committee officers asked him the same questions: when he had bought books through the website last and whether he was personally acquainted with Aliaksandr Yaudakh.

Knihi.net is well-known for being the largest Belarusian on-line library of independent literary works and media production. According to Mr. Yaudakh, the website was established as a non-profit institution seeking to popularize the Belarusian culture. At present the website is inaccessible for visitors.
