Riot police go on raid in settlement near Homiel


Riot policemen made a raid to pursue the holidaymakers at a lake near the Kasciukouka settlement.

The charter97.org learnt about the incident from a reader.

“Yesterday in the evening and today at night for unknown reasons a cleansing started in the Kasciukouka of Homiel region. I witnessed two cases. First, I saw through the window as a police car with riot policemen arrived, the policemen took a young man. I do not know, whether he was drunk or not, but he did not resist”, - he pointed out.

The reader added that the second case took place about 1 a.m.

“Our company was sitting on a bench near the local lake. There was an empty beer bottle on the table, which someone had left before us. By the water there were two guys with beers in their hands. About 10 minutes later two groups of riot policemen approached us and said that we were disturbing the public order. We threw out the bottle, and they left us alone. But they took those two guys with beers”, - he concluded.

It should be mentioned that this is not the first case, when our readers from Homiel region complain about police self-will. Recently the residents of the Octyabrskiy settlement and the village of Razhnou reported of illegal searches in their houses.
