The criminal-executive inspection of the Leninski District Police Department of Minsk warned the former presidential candidate, political prisoner Uladzimir Niakliayeu, for participation in the People's Assembly on 8 October in Minsk.

As said by Mr. Niakliayeu to RFE/RL, on 8 October police visited his apartment three times in order to find whether he was at home. They brought him a writ for 12 a.m. on 10 October.

“They were clearly ordered to use any pretext to add something to my case so that it would be thick enough when the court will sentence me to imprisonment”, stated Mr. Niakliayeu.

Bear in mind that on 3 October he received the first warning, for leaving Belarus without an official permission (he went to Warsaw for 27-30 September).

In May Uladzimir Niakliayeu had been sentenced to 2 years of imprisonment with a two-year determent. It means that he still lives under a constant control. His freedom of movement is restricted. In particular, he has to stay at home at 8 p.m. - 6 a.m. everyday.
