(UPD) Almost al the detainees were released; Kapitonava, Reznikava and Harchanka were taken to Tsentralny district police department; they had to spend 2-3 hours there.
“The detention is part of the special services’ and police’s action spearheaded against journalists and Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya‘s supporters. Our colleagues did not break the law and did not even have time to start performing their professional duties. The police are deliberately discrediting the state and trying to block access to independent information,” Belsat TV Information Programming Director Zmitser Yahorau says.
According to eyewitnesses, the police officers also grabbed the people who came to the KGB headquarters to support Viktar Babaryka. At about 16:40, seven persons standing in line were reportedly put into a minibus and taken in an unknown direction.
