Valiantsin Stefanovich, deputy chair of the Human Rights Center “Viasna”, was put on the notorious black list of foreign travel restrictions for alleged draft evasion, says a representative of a department on migration and citizenship in Minsk.

However, the military enlistment office officials say the human rights defender has no restrictions dealing with draft obligations.

Valiantsin Stefanovich was stopped at the Belarusian-Lithuanian border on 11 March.
