On 13 July in the morning journalists went to the General Procuracy of Belarus in order to pass their address to its head, Ryhor Vasilevich.

In this address the journalists remind that they implement their professional duties at mass events and have a legal right to do it. They also demand to hold a check-up concerning the unlawful detentions, destruction of the confiscated photo materials and obstacles to their professional activities, and bring the perpetrators to legal account.

Bear in mind that according to the Belarusian Association of Journalists, 77 Belarusian and foreign journalists have been detained at silent protest actions in Belarus this summer.

The address was signed by 30 journalists. A similar address was submitted to Anatol Kuliashou, Interior Minister. Its copies were also submitted to the Information Minister, Aleh Praliaskouski, and the Chair of the Supreme Court, Valiantski Sukala.
