Independent journalist called to police in Mogilev

They want to take Ales Burakou’s fingerprints.

A person, who introduced himself as a policeman Viktar Tsarou, invited Ales Burakou to come to a police station for his fingerprints to be taken, the press-service of the Belarusian Association of Journalists reports. The journalist already received such invitations before. In fact, he has been receiving them for a year and especially frequently after the blast in Minsk’s subway in April 2011. In case of refusal the policeman promised that journalist would have problems with crossing the country’s border, including the one with Russia.

Aliaksandr Burakou requested an official subpoena to be sent to him.
