French police conducted a thorough search of the Belarus national team on hockey, having arrived in Paris by train from Bordeaux to participate in the ‘ 81 world championship.
One of the witnesses of the incident described took place in an interview with “Pressball”.
“When the train arrived, us, allegedly for security reasons, asked to stay in the car. After a few minutes, when it was given permission to exit, we were in a police cordon, which suddenly turned into a makeshift customs checkpoint. Quite hard: the personal things of the players and coaches were subjected to a very thorough screening process. As shown, carefully inspect Luggage age coaches. As for the doctor of our team, then his stuff reviewed every pill and vial,” said the eyewitness.
According to him, a translator in the course of the search was a French tour guide team. Apparently, none of zasmatrivatsya not mastered the Cyrillic alphabet.
“All attempts to figure out what’s the matter, ran hard “let me work”. The inspection lasted about 20 minutes and the whole time we were in the cordon of men in uniform. It seems that in addition to police, there were military. It ended with the fact that we were told “well, you have everything in order,” the source added.
Recall that the world hockey championship will be held from 5 to 21 may in Cologne and Paris. The first match of the tournament the national team of Belarus will hold on Friday against Finland.
