Personal data collection instead of investigation

In the framework of the investigation of the criminal case of the attack at the Lithuanian embassy in Minsk on 6 November various investigatory activities are still being carried out.

The investigation is led by the Partisan Investigatory Committee of Minsk, but concurrently with searching for the criminals the local Pinkertons are trying to get as much information as possible from the participants of different informal groups, the human rights center Viasna reports.

For that purpose it was ordered to the internal affairs departments to take explanations from those who fell into the field of polices attention as a radical activist. It puts one on guard that together with the conventional and logical question Where were you on the day of the attack at the embassy on 6 November? there is another a dozen of questions in the list which do not relate directly to the case. For example:

- Are you a member of any organizations?

- Do you participate in meetings and gatherings?

- Have you ever been detained before? What was the article?

- What web-sites do you read? What is your nickname there?

- Do you go abroad, to what countries?

At the ends of a questioning a policeman has also to fill in a special column: Emotional state during the questioning.

First of all those were questioned who were the witnesses or suspects on the case of the Minsk anarchists two years ago. Apart from a questioning they underwent the procedures of fingerprints and saliva samples being taken.

By the way, a former political prisoner Uladzimir Yaromenak also got in these black lists. He was forcedly taken to the Partisan districts police department on 29 November so he would provide explanations about the incident at the Lithuanian embassy. However on that day he was at the Moscow districts police department and that is why the questioning only lasted for couple minutes.
