Activist Yauheny Kanstantinau has been questioned by KGB officers as a witness in Andrei Haidukou's case.
The activist said to charter97.org:
“I was questioned by the Minsk KGB department. It took two hours. I signed a non-disclosure agreement. They didn't tell me anything. I feel they will not summon me again.”
He stressed he asked for a personal meeting with his friend.
“Andrei's sister and I passed him a parcel before the interrogation. I also insisted on visiting my friend, but I was denied a meeting. I don't know how he is,” Yauheny Kanstsantinau said.
It should be reminded that Andrei Haidukou was detained in Vitebsk on November 8. The 23-year-old worker of Naftan plant is charged with spying. Officially, the guy was detained “as he was installing a dead drop with information interesting for foreign secret services”.
Many find the accusation ridiculous. European Belarus civil campaign released a statement saying that the activist was detained for distributing Charter'97 newspaper. Human rights activists link Haidukou's arrest to his pro-opposition views and explain it by attempts to scare young activists.
