Viktar Buzinayeu, chair of the United Civil Party’s Babruisk office, may be deprived of right to custody of his disabled parents, say local social service officials.

“My father is a sight-disabled person, my mother is former inmate of a Nazi concentration camp, and they have been in my custody for nearly five years already. There have been no remands or inspections during the period. Now, they threat me with deprivation of custody. When I was away, some people from the social service of Pershamaiski District came to talk with them. Then they phoned me to tell that they might be deprived of my custody, since I was not present when the inspection visited them”, says Mr. Buzinayeu.

When Mr. Buzinayeu visited local social service on 20 March, he was told that they were doing that by order from the KGB.

Viktar Buzinayeu’s father is appalled by the incident, and has lodged a statement with the social service demanding to explain why his son might be deprived of a custodian’s rights.
