On July 28th, approximately 50 people were detained while submitting Motions for Personal Suretyship for Viktar Babaryka to the State Security Committee.
This is a brazen and cynical detention. People entered the building without any suspicion. There they were detained by the special police forces OMON, escorted out of the building into the courtyard, loaded into a paddy wagon and taken to the District Department for Internal Affairs. The majority of people weren’t able to submit their motions.
Thank you for responding to our plea. It is very important. It is even more important to support those who have been detained.
