Law-enforcement bodies silent about case of “senator” Kastahorau


The KGB does not say on whose initiative “senator” Vitali Kastahorau was stripped of the immunity.

The bodies with the right to open criminal cases – the Investigation Committee, the General Prosecutor's Office and the KGB – do not reveal the author of the initiative to remove the immunity of member of the “council of the republic” Vitali Kastahorau. There's no information whether a criminal case was opened and whether charges were brought, BelaPAN reports.

The press service of the “council of the republic” said on July 9 that the senator was stripped of his parliamentary immunity.

Kastahorau lost his immunity in accordance with article 47 of the law “On the status of a member of the House of Representatives or the Council of the Republic” of November 4, 1998, in connection with information from the law-enforcement bodies.

Kastahorau was appointed member of the “council of the republic” of the fifth convocation as a representative of the Mahilou region (he was proposed by Mahilou, Klichau and Slauharad districts). He is the director of Polytex private limited company.
