Belorussian border guards have refused entry into the country to Lithuanian MP Kazimieras Uoka who was on his way to Minsk to attend a campaign organized by public organizations against nuclear energy.

Uoka did not have a visa, but he maintains to have been told by the Belorussian Embassy that he could enter the country for one day with his diplomatic passport.

"I was ordered off the train at the border and was put on another one heading to Vilnius. I was told at the embassy that I could enter Belarus for one day with my diplomatic passport," Uoka, of the political group of non-affiliated parliament members, told BNS.

Last week, Uoka intended to go to Belarus to meet with opponents of construction of Astraviec nuclear power plant. The Belorussian nuclear project is currently developed next to Astraviec, a town some 50 kilometers east of Vilnius.

Lithuania has filed a plea, saying that Belorussian actions in connection to the Astraviec nuclear project run counter to the Espoo convention. Lithuania maintains Belarus has so far failed to provide answers about the nuclear plant construction plans and failed to hold public hearings and bilateral consultations.

Lithuanian diplomats say Belarus launched construction work in Astraviec site in January of 2009, but invited Lithuania to join the environmental impact assessment process only in August.
