The KGB keeps silence
Not having received a reply from the KGB detention centre on June 5, 2012 Lyubou Kavaliova has filed a complaint adressed to KGB Head Vadzim Zaytsau in which she demands to bring all persons in charge to justice.
“I can not understand why the son’s records are not returned. The hearing is over, the boys are executed, there is no secrecy. Belarusian TV showed all the case materials, everything was covered,” Lyubou Kavaliova says.
