In Belarus, he offered to judge opposition emigrants in his absence


State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Alexander Volfovič he said the country could introduce amendments to laws that would make it possible to pass judgments in the criminal cases of opposition people who went abroad in their absence.

“There must have been an omission in criminal procedural law …” Volfovich.

According to him, according to the current legislation, the “principle of inevitability of criminal punishment for a committed crime” has not been fulfilled. Because of this, the secretary of state added, a “criminal” can leave the country and live in peace, and even at the request of security officials, other states do not extradite him “for political reasons.” If changes are made, the court will be able to convict such people in absentia, Volfovich concluded.
