The Belarusian Investigative Committee opened a criminal case over trespassing and damaging property owned by opposition politician Mikalai Statkevich’s family.
In the early hours of March 25, unknown individuals made holes in the tyres of two cars which were parked not far from the house where the Statkevich family lives. The owners of the Ford and the Opel are the politician’s wife and father respectively
Seven of the eight wheels were damaged. Someone intentionally cut the tyres with a knife so that punctures could not be sealed, Statkevich’s wife Maryna Adamovich told Belsat.
As reported earlier, Mikalai Statkevich, Uladzimir Nyaklyayeu, Yauhen Afnahel, Maxim Vinyarski, Vyachaslau Siuchyk were released from prison after the Freedom Day celebration was over.
All of them were preventively detained on the eve of the march on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Belarus’ nationhood proclamation which was to have taken place in Yakub Kolas Square on March 25.
