A local activist, Uladzimir Niapomniashchykh, was detained in the centre of Homel.
Two sergeants of the patrol and inspection service of the police took him to a police station,” Viasna human rights centre reports.
“I went through yards and saw two policemen. One of them was smoking, the other was eating a banana. I passed by them, but they stopped me and ordered to show them my camera. They thought I took a photo of them. I showed it, and they didn't find photographs with policemen. They then ordered me to show my passport. I said they should show me their police cards. They showed it quickly, I didn't even have time to see them properly. So, I refused to show my passport. The sergeants took me to a police station,” the activist said.
He is now at the police station. The policemen wait for their commanders to make a report. Uladzimir Niapomniashchykh suggests he will have problems due to his t-shirt with the text “For Belarus without Lukashenka” on the front and “Enough. Tired of you” on the back.
