Run for parliament – say bye to your car
9:11, — Politics
An activist of Tell the Truth campaign, who wants to run for a seat in the parlaiment, found her car arrested.
Traffic police of Mahilou stopped Aksana Samuilava, a coordinator of Tell the Truth civil campaign, who was driving her car.
Aksana was stopped for an alleged violation of the road rules (she didn't give way to pedestrians), but the further events did not look like an ordinary road accident, zapraudu.info reports.
“I did not have any 'illegal printed materials' or anything else that could be interpreted as 'a threat to the constitutional order'. I signed a police report on a traffic rules violation and paid a fine on the scene.
The road police officer then began to figure out on his walkie-talkie if my car was on the stolen car list. He was told the court of the Kastrychnitski district of Mahilou had arrested my car and it should be moved to a car pound. I told the policeman I knew nothing about the court decision and had not been involved in any court proceedings.
It was an emotional shock for. The police officer (we were sitting in his car), came to my car, took the key and called a tow vehicle.
As a result, I myself drove the car to the car pound. I have two reports: a report on administrative arrest of a vehicle and a car examination report. I will go to the Kastrychnitski district court to find out why they deliver judgements and don't inform people.
I think the incident with my car arrest is an attempt of the local authorities to create obstacles for me, because I am going to run in the parliamentary election in a constituency in Babruisk, though I live in Mahilou. To deprive me of a car now means to reduce my opportunities to talk to voters. Officials seem to be scared that I can be a serious rival for pro-governmental candidates,” the activist said.
