Office of Prosecutor General refuses to exclude Anatol Liabedzka from ‘black list’
The Office of the Prosecutor General refused to exclude the leader of the United Civil Party Anatol Liabedzka from the list of the persons restricted for foreign traveling.
As the politician said at the 2 February press conference at the BPF Party office, the Office of the Prosecutor General answered to his written inquiry only in two months (whereas the legal term is one month). ‘An appropriate inquiry has been directed to the prosecutorial organs of the Russian Federation in order to clear the circumstances that are necessary for taking a grounded decision on your address. There is still no answer to it, which does not let us take any decision on this issue,’ was stated in the answer.
Anatol Liabedzka reminds that the reason for putting him on the black list was a criminal case that had been brought against him for ‘insult of the president of Belarus’ five years ago because of the interview that he had given to Nikolai Svanidze, in ‘Zerkalo’ program. ‘I have no idea what inquiry they directed to the prosecutorial organs of the Russian Federation and why, as the cassette with the materials of the interview has been attached to the case materials. I asked the Office of the Prosecutor General to either pass the case to the court for the trial or drop it. Neither of the steps has been taken so far,’ Liabedzka says.
