Border guards stamped their passports with “denied entry” without giving any reasons.

A group of members of the Polish Sejm, members of the Committee on Liaison with Poles Abroad, was denied entry to Belarus, parliamentary committee chairAdam Lipinski says. The Polish MPs were going to visit Hrodna to have a meeting with leaders of the Union of Poles in Belarus, Polskie Radio reports.

The MPs were banned from entering Belarus, though they had diplomatic passports.

“Border guards placed denied entry stamps in our passports. They did not explain why,” Polish MP Adam Lipinski said.
