Two Czech TV crew members - a journalist and a cameraman - faced complications on Saturday while trying to complete a report on upcoming Parliamentary elections in Belarus. The two were stopped by police at the headquarters of the central electoral commission while taping the story of a candidate who had been struck from the ballot list. The two Czechs were asked by local police to hand over taped footage, which they refused, seeking help from members of an independent journalists' association instead.
Czech TV has since commented the incident as a routine hitch in Belarus, a country ruled by strong-arm president Alexander Lukashenko.
