It was proved during a prom which was held at the central square of the town of Malaryta.

Uladzimir Malei, returning from the town sauna, saw a crowd of people who were waiting for the prom and the arrival of a honorable guest – the head of the Brest Region Executive Committee Kanstantsin Sumar.

The human rights decided to listen to the regional official and proceeded to the first rows, closer to the microphone. Then he saw that the ideologist of the Malaryta District Executive Committee Siarhei Strok ran up to the head of the local police and pointed at Malei. Suddenly a lieutenant-colonel and a major came towards Malei and demanded that he open the plastic bag with his towel and slipper. When he offered the bag to them, an officer of the Brest regional bureau on civil security ran towards them and started shouting: “Have you forgotten you have been kept in jail? You will be carried away and you’ll get there again!”

As a result, Mr. Malei was expelled from the first rows, being ordered to sit as far from the microphone as possible. He had to obey, but his weekend mood was hopelessly spoiled by the humiliating behavior of the police and the extraordinary vigilance of ideologist Strok.
