Vitsebsk police attempted to prevent Russian journalists from interviewing the mother of Uladzislau Kavaliou, executed in March on charges of plotting a terrorist attack in Minsk underground back in April 2011.

The journalists eventually managed to enter Liubou Kavaliova’s house. However, they were forced to give their passports to the policemen, who have been “guarding” the entrance to the house since Uladzislau Kavaliou was arrested.

The family of Dzmitry Kanavalau, who was also executed in March, has been “guarded” by the police since mid-April 2011.
