KGB detains priest in Belarus

July 30, 2013

A Russian news agency and a Belarusian news site are reporting that a priest is being detained in a Belarusian KGB prison.

“We only know this fact, but we don't have reliable information about the grounds for the arrest” of Father Vladislav Lazar, said a spokesman for the bishops’ conference in Belarus, which is located between Poland and Russia.

News of Father Lazar’s detention follows a statement by President Alexander Lukashenko that “we have recently detained a traitor who served in special services and was connected with foreign states through representatives of the Roman Catholic Church.”
