The fact that at the border crossing between Poland and Belarus Kondrusevich was not allowed into the country was confirmed to the Belarusian service of Radio Liberty by the archbishop himself
On Monday, Belarusian border guards denied entry to the country to Metropolitan Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz, head of the conference of Catholic bishops of Belarus.
The fact that at the border crossing between Poland and Belarus Kondrusevich was not allowed into the country was confirmed to the Belarusian service of Radio Liberty by the archbishop himself.
The statement, published on the official website of the Roman Catholic Church in Belarus, emphasizes that Kondrusiewicz is a Belarusian citizen. In Poland, he was on a business trip. He was refused entry without explanation.
In recent weeks, Kondrusevich has criticized several times about the actions of the law enforcement agencies of Belarus in relation to the participants of the mass protests in the country. In addition, he said that there is reason to believe that the presidential elections were held unfairly. Kondrusiewicz also called for a peaceful resolution of the political crisis in Belarus.
According to official data, about 1 million 400 thousand inhabitants of Belarus, or more than 10 percent of the country’s population, consider themselves to be the Catholic Church. There are especially many Catholics in the Grodno region. This is the second largest religious denomination after the Orthodox.
