Poles arrested in Belarus – statement

Poczobut/Borys

We are protesting against the arrests of the activists of the Association of Poles in Belarus!

The headquarters as well as the apartments of its members were searched by the officers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Andzelika Borys, the Leader of the Association of Poles in Belarus, Anna Paniszewa, Irena Biernacka, Maria Tiszkowska, as well as the journalist Andrzej Poczobut were arrested.

We are outraged by the actions of the Belarusian law enforcement and we are calling for the immediate release of our compatriots!
