As many as 20 workers of the newspaper “Nasha Niva” have been summoned to the Investigative Committee, the editor-in-chief of “NN” Yahor Martsinovich announced on Facebook.

“The Investigative Committee launches its own conveyor belt. The next week, all 20 employees of Nasha Niva are summoned for interrogation,” the editor said.

According to him, the workers were summoned as witnesses in the libel case against the now former Deputy Interior Minister Alyaksandr Barsukou.

Yahor Martsinovich is a suspect under Article 188 of the Criminal Code. Earlier, his house was searched, and he was detained for several days.

The former deputy minister of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Barsukou was recognized as the victim after an article where DJ Uladzislau Sakalouski says that he beat him in Akrestin street jail.
