The day after Aliaksandr Lukashenka confessed election results had been rigged the leader of the United Civil Party Anatol Liabedzka addressed the prosecutor’s office of Belarus with an appeal to initiate a criminal case based on the statement of the Belarusian leader. In the answer received by the leader of the party recently, it is said that ‘the Prosecutor’s office of Belarus does not have any information about concrete facts related to rigging of the presidential elections results on 19 March 2006’.

’If we had a constitutional state and really independent prosecutor’s office, citizen Lukashenka would get a summons to the prosecutor’s office. That is why the whole game is in observing acting of prosecutors who are representing themselves as deaf and helpless disabled persons. They are not watching TV. They do not listen to their president. According to the version of people who are to control strict observance of the law, Lukashenka is not an ordinary mortal, and our usual laws do not apply to him,’ Anatol Liabedzka believes.

As we have informed, at a press conference for Ukrainian journalists in 2006 Aliaksandr Lukashenka told that the presidential vote held in March 2006 was rigged.

’We have rigged the latest election. 93.5 per cent have voted for Lukashenka. But they say it is not a European measure. We have made it 86 per cent,’ A. Lukashenka said. As said by him, there were promises by Europe before the elections that in case ‘of approximately European figures at the election, the election would be recognized’. ‘But it failed too. They promised to recognize the ballot, but they didn’t,’ Lukashenka stated.
