On Friday in his office first deputy chairman of Minsk Executive Committee Igor Vasiliev was detained.

As a reader of charter97.org informed, the official was arrested, according to a source, by the use of force security officers wearing masks.

In the Investigative Committee of Belarus there is no criminal case against Deputy Chairman of the Minsk City Executive Committee Igor Vasiliev, the department of Information and Public Relations informed BelaPAN.

In the State Security Committee they also don't comment his detention. "No official comments, yet", said Deputy Head of the Agency Information Centre and Public Relations of the KGB, Arthur Strekh.

A spokesman for the Minsk City Executive Committee told BelaPAN that Vasilyev is officially on vacation.

Alexander Lukashenko agreed on the appointment of Igor Vasiliev as the First Deputy Chairman of Minsk City Executive Committee on October 4, 2010. Vasiliev became the manager of energy issues, utilities, of Tender Center and Gorremavtodor in Minsk City Executive Committee.
