Aleksandr Lukashenko hears our report of Belarus' Prosecutor General

    President of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko met with Prosecutor General of Belarus Alexander Konyuk to receive his report on 6 February.
    The President pointed out the most topical issues for discussion. Those are the situation in the prosecution system as a whole, including personnel matters, and the state of affairs in law enforcement, in particular, crime control.

    Special attention was drawn to the formation of the Investigation Committee and the body’s cooperation with the Prosecutor General’s office. “The Investigation Committee is a child of the Interior Ministry, the Prosecutor General’s office, the State Control Committee and other law enforcement agencies. You should control the formation of the Investigation Committee,” the head of state noted.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized that the efforts of prosecution bodies aimed at monitoring the observance of the law should be done intentionally. Prosecutors should be relieved of uncharacteristic functions.

    At the meeting the head of state once again demanded that comprehensive measures should be taken to step up fight against corruption and organized crime.

    The Prosecutor General said that the new algorithm of cooperation with other law enforcement agencies in this sphere was being worked out to improve work in this area.

    2011 saw the total number of grave crimes go down, including severe ones.

    The head of state remarked that all the main matters concerning the operation of prosecution bodies will be considered at a special session to be chaired by the President.
