Belarus Ministry of Internal Affairs starts checking another rival of Lukashenko :: Politics :: RBC

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.


Lukashenko said Moscow understands the situation with Gazprom Bank :: Politics :: RBC

According to the president, he was struck that during searches in the bank, law enforcement officers found that “in all the main cells there were flash drives, hard drives and mountains of documents” that store a “huge layer of information”. The Belarusian authorities, according to Lukashenko, learned about what was happening at the bank in December last year, and it was not possible to arrest Babariko earlier, since there was no evidence base. He also added that if “the Americans did not put pressure on the Latvian bank last year,” Belarus would hardly have received information about fraud.

On June 11, searches were held at the head office of the financial organization. Employees of the State Control Committee (KGK) of Belarus seized more than $ 4 million and securities worth more than $ 500 thousand, and also detained 15 people. KGC said that Babariko was involved in illegal activities that led to searches and criminal proceedings. The latter are instituted under Art. 235 (legalization of funds obtained by criminal means on an especially large scale) and Art. 243 of the Criminal Code (tax evasion on an especially large scale).

On June 18, Babariko was detained; he is suspected of influencing witnesses and concealing evidence of crimes, as well as participating in money laundering.

Ivan Tertel, Chairman of the State Control Committee of Belarus, said that “puppeteers” from Gazprom or “even higher” stand for Babariko. In response, the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov asked to argue this statement, recalling that the largest Russian companies are protected by the state.

Babariko himself called the raids a raid and claimed that it was a campaign directed directly against him.
