MINSK, 1 October (BelTA) – The Belarusian security service and law enforcement will use a targeted approach to investigate suspicious activities, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with senior officials of the Belarus President Administration on 1 October, BelTA has learned.
According to the president, there is an opinion that the murder of the KGB officer will become a reason for sweeping cleanup operations. “Listen, we are not that stupid to act on all fronts at once. If we do (we know how to do it), innocent people may get hurt. When you use a sweeping approach, you may hurt people who are not involved in these activities at all,” the head of state explained.
“Therefore, let me clarify my position. We will use a targeted and careful approach with the assistance of the security service and other agencies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs to investigate the activities of different people, different organizations, and other things. We have enough wits to deal with every scoundrel,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.
In his words, comprehensive work is underway to uncover such people, including in all kinds of internet chats. “Several hundreds of people have been detained, they are now in a detention facility in Okrestina Street. These people are testifying,” the president said. “You have already seen some of them. We will show more of them on TV. Igor Sergeyenko said it right that it is too late for them to clean up their chats. We got our hands on all accounts. We see what these people are worth. If some scoundrels like Tsepkalo and others think that they are unreachable abroad, they are mistaken. We will not forgive the death of this man,” the Belarusian leader said.
