The authorities continue to pressure the public activist.
Public activist and film director Volha Nikalaichyk told Charter97.org about the pressure, which is being put on her by bailiffs:
– In the morning of January 14, I returned to Belarus from Kiev and noticed that I had no mobile connection. Having arrived in Minsk, I could not phone my relatives, friends, or doctor. I received a warning by post from court bailiffs, saying that the bailiff had forbidden MTS and Velcom telecoms operators to fulfill their obligations under the contract concluded with me.
I turned to my lawyers in the HRC Viasna. The human rights activists confirmed that I had no debts or new fines. I believe this is a way to put more pressure on me. The authorities are putting the sticks in the wheel, trying to paralyze my life. I have severe bronchitis and sometimes hypertensive crises occur. If my landline phone is disconnected, I would not even be able to call an ambulance. That's how I was met back home. The situation is dreadful, I’d say.
