Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko heard out a report from Chairman of the Investigation Committee of Belarus Ivan Noskevich on 12 January.

“In the near future we will hold the session to discuss the performance of all law enforcement agencies in 2016, we will invite the representatives of judicial bodies to outline and discuss the issues that I am monitoring, starting from the reformation of the judicial and investigation system in general,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The President listened to the report on the performance of the Investigation Committee in 2016, including on the optimization of the committee. “The optimization is important for all agencies. Perhaps, it is less topical for the Investigation Committee because it was formed not long ago. However, enough time has passed for us to make sure that we had made right organizational decisions when building our Investigation Committee, distributing functions and authorities between investigation units, and so on. This issue will be also discussed at the large session with the participation of the Investigation Committee. This is one of the major issues for the entire system with the Supreme Court at the top,” the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko also asked about the results of the investigation of the most resonant criminal cases. Special attention was drawn to the need to solve the murder of a businessman in Berezino. “This is the point of honor. I have warned the Interior Minister, and he promised to solve this criminal case. You should pay attention to such cases,” the President emphasized.
