Investigation Committee and KGB investigate criminal cases in Lukashenka's Property Management Directorate


The Investigation Committee and the KGB carry out investigation in a number of criminal cases relating to corruption in dictator's Property Management Directorate.

This statement was made by Viktar Sheiman, the head of Lukashenka's Property Management Department, at a meeting with the dictator to discuss the work of this government institution.

”According to Sheiman, the Investigation Committee investigates three criminal cases over involvement of a number of officials of the Main Capital Construction Department, the Main Economic Department in the crimes relating to embezzlement of state funds,” Interfax-West news agency learnt from the presidential press service.

The press service also noted that the KGB  сarriers out an inquiry on suspicion of involvement of some officials in corruption.

“Sheiman drew special attention to gross violations in spending funds on purchases in construction and other spheres,” the press service reports. “The violations were revealed in the course of inspections by regulatory and law-enforcement bodies and monitoring the situation at a number of Property Management Directorate's enterprises by interdepartamental working groups. Illegal actions of certain officials were already legally estimated. Criminal cases were initiated against some officials,” Sheiman said adding that “According to the State Control Committee, 15 organisations of the Property Management Directorate were engaged in financial activity with economic entities with the signs of false business activities in 2009-2012.”

Sheiman thinks the main reason for the existing problems was “low efficiency of the administration system and, in certain cases, a low professional level of employees who are unable to resolve complex tasks. The administrative apparatus lacks flexibility and effective control,” the press service informs.
