CNA Staff, Sep 15, 2020 / 07:00 am (CNA).- A Catholic archbishop has appealed to the interior ministry of Belarus after border authorities said he was prevented from returning to his homeland because his passport was “invalid.”

Archbishop Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz wrote to the State Border Committee after he was turned back at the border Aug. 31 while attempting to reenter Belarus following a trip to Poland.  

The website of the Catholic Church in Belarus reported Sept. 14 that the archbishop of Minsk-Mohilev received a reply last week signed by Anatoly Lappo, chairman of the border committee, stating that the archbishop was blocked “in connection with the decision made by the internal affairs bodies to invalidate the passport of a citizen of the Republic of Belarus.”
