The car with Anzelika Orechwo, chairman of the informal Union of Poles in Belarus, and Andrzej Poczobut, chairman of the main council of the association, was detained for an hour in Slonim in the middle of the afternoon on July, 8th. Leaders of the unregistered UPB moved from Hrodna to Minsk on a meeting with eurocommissioner Stefan Fule.
According to Anzelika Orechwo, police officers stated that the car had sagged because of heavy cargo in it. Within the «Arsenal» operation, the car was delivered to the police office because of suspicion that some weapon can be transported in it, BelaPAN informs.
