Human rights activist Ales Kaputski was returned his equipment seized during a search on 25 December 2010, in connection with a criminal case over “mass disorders”.

He found two system units and a camera broken and all information deleted from them.

The human rights defender has been waiting for the return of the seized equipment for almost a year. To learned news about his belongings, he appealed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, but his request was re-sent to KGB. KGB replied the equipment had already been returned. After the activist demanded to show him a document confirming the return, he received a telephone call from police, who said he could take his things back.

He found the processors broken and hard drives with information removed from the computer cases. The camera does not work. Ales doubts if there is sense in filing complaints over this fact.
