At the headquarters of Tsepkalo, they answered that there was already a court decision on this issue, which Iggeji did not dispute. The structures affiliated with it were generally forbidden to engage in construction in Belarus due to numerous violations. “Not a single object was completed to the end and was not transferred in the prescribed manner to the customer. Dozens of legal proceedings have taken place or are ongoing in all facilities, ”the headquarters noted. “We can only guess about the motives of the current statement of Mr. Iggeji. We are carefully studying the situation regarding the possibility of filing a lawsuit against Mr. Igdeji for the protection of honor, dignity and business reputation as a result of the dissemination of false information, ”said Tepkalo at the headquarters.
Tsepkalo became the last remaining free representative of the “big opposition three” rivals of Alexander Lukashenko in the August presidential election. Two other members, blogger Sergei Tikhanovsky and former head of Belgazprombank Viktor Babariko, have already been detained. In an interview with RBC, Tsepkalo did not rule out that something similar could happen to him, but assured: “We are simply moving in the political process, doing what is allowed to be done in accordance with the Constitution and the electoral legislation of our country.”
On June 24, Tsepkalo announced that he had handed over 160 thousand signatures to the Central Election Commission with the required 100 thousand. Registration of candidates for the presidential elections, which will be held on August 9, is scheduled for July 5-14.
RBC sent a request to the representative of Valery Tsepkalo.
