A number of opposition activists of the town of Salihorsk (Minsk region) have been reportedly summoned to local police department for “conversations” ahead of President Lukashenka’s visit to town expected today.
In particular, police have been looking for Pavel Batuyeu, who refused to appear at the police department, saying he would not be in town during the visit.
Police captain Yauhen Zhylinski, who is said to be in charge of “supervising” local opposition activists, has also visited the private house of pro-democratic leader Uladzimir Shyla. However, he could not speak to the activist as he was away on business.
