Viktar Tsiapin, a member of the Belarusian Leftist Party “Fair World” from Baranavichy, received an answer from the General Procuracy of Belarus, signed by the head of law observance supervision department Pavel Radyionau, states that the General Procuracy doesn't possess any written evidence of violations of the electoral legislation during the registration of presidential candidates on 19 December 2010.

Bear in mind that the activist asked the procuracy to check the statement allowed by A.Lukahenka at a press-conference in October 2011 that the latest presidential election was held according to the EU notions, not according to the legislation, and that he shared signatures in his support with other candidates so that their candidates would be registered.

According to Mr. Tsiapin, there are two variants. If the procuracy admits that Lukashenka grossly violated the electoral legislation, the results of the presidential election must be annulled. The other variant is simply admit that Lukashenka lied at the press-conference for Russian journalists. Then he inflicted a great damage to Belarusian citizens and the image of Belarus as a constitutional state.

So, the activist to file another claim with the procuracy – to punish Aliaksandr Lukashenka for moral harm to the Republic of Belarus and its citizens.
