Warning issued to Uladzimir Nyaklyaeu


The prosecutor’s office of Leninski district of Minsk has issued an official warning to the presidential candidate Uladzimir Nyaklyaeu.

The Prosecutor’s office has warned Nyaklyaeu that suspension of the punishment could be annulled, and the politician himself could be sent into prison, in case he is going to continue violate the rules of conduct made for him as for a convicted person.

"The prosecutor’s office viewed as a violation my visit to Kreva, my birthplace, on Dzyady holiday. I came to the graves of my parents, grandparents. Such cases are unprecedented in Belarus, when a person is punished for remembering one’s forefathers. I think my predecessor had rolled over in their graves", Uladzimir Nyaklyaeu told to Radio Liberty.

The politician is convinced that the summons to the prosecutor’s office is primarily related with the coming anniversary of December 19 events. However, despite the warning, Nyaklyaeu will come to the Square on December 19 anyway. A year ago he was stopped on the way to the square: "Even their rules of conduct do not have regulations that in my city I cannot be in a place I want on any day of the year".
