Lukashenko Discontent Over Railroad’s Performance 11:16, 05/02/2002
Alexander Lukashenko declared that he is dissatisfied with how the things are going on at the Belarusian railroad. He cited as one of the key reasons for that “the ineffective and unsatisfactory management with a range of heads of the railroad entangled in power abuse and solving personal problems at the state’s expense,” – said the Belarusian leader on February 5 during his meeting with the leadership of the Belarusian railroad. According to him, the inspections into the railroad’s performance, carried out by both the procuracy and the Committee for state control revealed “serious omissions and even criminal actions by the railroad’s directors”.
As you remember, currently they are curtailing the Belarusian railroad’s apparatus, as far as the Cabinet of Ministers ruled to reduce the number of deputy directors from seven to four. Certain departments will be united into one, their personnel facing redundancy. Some of the railroad’s heads are subject to legal action. They are accused of committing power abuse and embezzlement.
