New head of the Investigatory Committee ignores the appeals of citizens


According to the Belarusians, who disagree with verdicts, to all the complaints he respond with formal replies beside the point.

Liudmila Kuchura, a representative of a group of citizens, who do not agree with courts decisions on criminal, civil and administrative cases, told the charter97.org web-site.

Thus, the new head of the Investigatory Committee Valiantsin Shaeu does not react to citizens’ appeals and reply beside the point, the

“The Investigatory Committee is an agency, which stands on guard of officials, covers their illegal activities. Valiantsin Shaeu worked at the Prosecutor General’s office as a head of a department and replied to appeals with formal responses. Appeals were never considered according to the legislation when he was in charge. Then he was the prosecutor for the Gomel region and from there they sent him to the Investigatory Committee. Shaeu transferred the practice doing nothing and replying beside the point from the Prosecutor General’s office to the Investigatory Committee”.

We would remind that on 9 November Lukashenka dismissed Vadzim Zaitseu from the positions of the KGB chairman. As one of the reasons for the dismissal of the former KGB’s chief Zaitsau was named the death of a lieutenant colonel Aliaksandr Kazak. At the same time, independent experts lean towards the version that the reshuffle is caused by the inter-clan battles within the enforcing agencies.

Today the former head of the Investigatory Committee Valery Vakulchyk was appointed the new chief of KGB and former Vakulchyk’s deputy Valiantsin Shaeu has become the new chairman of the Investigatory Committee.
