The tax inspection demands the famous Belarusian blogger Yauhen Lipkovich and his wife to submit an asset and income declaration for 2010. Lipkovich received a letter from the tax inspection office on Monday.

The blogger said in an interview to Polskie Radio that the tax inspection has the right to require filing a tax declaration, but neither he nor his wife have faced these demands before. “I read on the Internet that they constantly demand most opposition politicians to file asset and income declarations. I have a suspicion that they consider me an opposition member, though it is not true and has never been true,” he says.

Yauhen Lipkovich is known as a blogger writing about pathologic situations in the Belarusian reality on his LJ blog. He also burnt in public a book “Secret of the Oval Office” by pro-Lukashenka writer Mikalai Charhinets, because he found it pornographic.
