Belarus: Journalists released but under restrictions
02 Feb 2011

The KGB have released journalists Irina Khalip and Charter 97’s Natalia Radzina but have placed serious restrictions on their movement and activities. Radina has been forced to leave Minsk to the western town of Kobrin and remain there until her case is investigated further, while Khalip — who is married to former presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov — is under house arrest and is not allowed to use the phone or access the internet. The two were arrested on December 19 following post-election protests.
