To have a legal ground to apply for compensation, Kremianetski is supposed to have a resolution of the body which took the decision to terminate the criminal case. Initially, it should be the document from the Investigatory Committee, but they decided there that Kremianetski needed to provide the document from the KGB.

The KGB, in turn, gives no reply to the enquieries of Kremianetski’s lawyer and the court. As a result, the consideration of the case has been suspended, and the court has summoned a KGB representative to the hearing.

"I want compensation for moral harm," — Zmitser Kremianetski said in a conversation with Radio Liberty". — We consulted with lawyers, with an attorney and decided that compensation should be like that. 10 thousand Belarusian rubles. I had a resolution to terminate the case from the Investigatory Committee. However, later they said that they had made a mistake and I should get such a paper from the KGB. The KGB remains silent. "

He was a suspect in the "patriots' case", but wasn’t charged. The case is considered by the Maskouski district court of Minsk, the date of the next hearing is still unknown.
