The activists of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Party Zmitser Shurkhai and Aliaksei Charkashyn were detained by road police at the entrance to Brest.

According to the BCD press-service, the policemen told the activists that their car was allegedly wanted on suspicion in knocking down a pedestrian in Minsk. The detainees were taken to the Maskouski District Police Department of Brest for expertise.

Shurkhai thinks that the detention was conducted in order to prevent them from taking part in the constituent assembly, which will take place on 17 December in Minsk. He thinks that they can be detained for up to three days for “identification”.
