The last dictatorship in Europe asked the neighbors about the "legal aid".
As the Chief of the Information Centre and Public Relations of the KGB of Belarus Aliaxandar Antanovich told to BelaPAN, taking into account international law and existing procedures, Belarusian side addressed to Lithuania and Sweden with a request to provide legal assistance in the investigation of a violation of the Belarusian border by the airplane on July 4.
Requests are directed through the General Prosecutor’s office of Belarus.
According to Antanovich, Belarusian law enforcement agencies proceed form the fact that the unauthorized flight of Swedish citizens has violated rules of the use of air space not only in Belarus but also in Sweden and Lithuania - the NATO countries.
In addition, as noted by Antanovich, Belarusian side insists on arrival of Swedish organizers and participants of the action in Minsk, what is necessary for an objective investigation of the case, since the identification parade on television is not possible. Thus, Antanovich responded to a question about the possibility of appeal to Swedish law enforcement authorities to conduct investigation actions against the citizens of this country in Sweden.
