Here We Go Again

By: Anna Kuleszewicz

Andrzej Poczobut, a Belarusian Pole, a journalist and chair of the Board of the Union of Poles in Belarus (UPB) was arrested on June 21st 2012 in his home and taken to Grodno. The basis of his accusation – defamation of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

It was not the first time when Andrzej Poczobut was charged with defamation. He was charged with the same crime in the spring of 2011. Now, after over a year, it is clear that Poczobut’s case is far from being history. Arrested a few days ago, jailed in Grodno, Poczobut once again is facing the exactly the same charges.

This time, however, events moved with light speed. Poczobut’s home was entered by two militia men and four people in civilian attire.
