MOSCOW, January 17 (Itar-Tass) - Police are searching the office of member of the Opposition Coordinating Council /KSO/ Vladimir Tor and the headquarters of the National-Democratic Party.
"The search began at 11:41, Moscow time, when I arrived at my office. Personnel of the Interior Ministry's E Center /for combating extremism/ are retrieving documents and computers," Tor told Itar-Tass.
In October 2012, he offered his office to the KSO central election committee which summed up voting results.
According to the Opposition activist, the National-Democratic Party, whose headquarters are being searched now, planned to apply for registration in the next few days.
Tor said he had no idea why the office was being searched, and law-enforcement bodies have not made any comments so far.
In March 2012, a group of nationalists announced the establishment of a National Democratic Party /NDP/. The Party sees its strategic objective in a Constitutional reform. Member of the NDP organizing committee Alexander Khramov said the Russian Constitution should spell out "the status of the Russian nation redistribute powers from the president to the government and revise the principles of federalism." The NDP founders claimed they had no intention to advocate "ethnic exceptionality, xenophobia or totalitarian values."
