Tikhanovskaya reveals alleged crimes

The leader of the opposition in Belarus has posted on the Internet details of alleged crimes by election workers and security officers, as anti-government protests continue in the country.

Protesters took to the streets across the former Soviet republic on Sunday. A citizens' group says about 150 demonstrators were detained in the capital Minsk and other places.

Mass protests erupted after President Alexander Lukashenko won a sixth term in an election in August over opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.

Demonstrators say the vote was rigged, demanding Lukashenko step down.

Tikhanovskaya says she has compiled a database of nearly 400 cases of election irregularities and crackdowns on demonstrators reported by citizens.

On Sunday, about 30 of these cases were posted on the Internet, including maps of where incidents allegedly occurred and the names of security force members accused of assaulting citizens.

The opposition hopes the database will help investigators look into the cases if the current government falls. They also want Western nations to use the database when they impose sanctions on the government.

The opposition plans to reveal other cases as they try to collect more information from the public.

Tikhanovskaya has used social media to declare the start of a new fight for justice.
