Boing Boing writes [1] that, according to an “unsourced report,” “the Belarusian mobile operators have cooperated with the country's secret police to provide a list of everyone who was in the vicinity of an anti-government demonstration; the spooks are now calling in everyone on the list to interview them about their involvement in political dissidence.” (via Information Policy [2])
