Some 30 members of Matchyn Rukh 328, an association of drug convicts’ relatives, gathered outside the House of Government on Tuesday to demand a meeting with the chairman of the House of Representatives on the opening day of the lower parliamentary house’s spring session.

The activists wanted Uladzimir Andreychanka to say when the House of Representatives planned to consider a bill softening penalties for some drug-related offenses.

Mr. Andreychanka refused to meet with the activists but they were eventually received by Vasil Chekan, deputy chairman of the national security committee.
