Belarus opposition’Creating a Record’ of officers involved in Road violence

Opposition activists in Belarus are compiling lists to discover soldiers and police allegedly involved with violence, the principal opposition candidate has stated.

Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya stated the documents were of human officers that participate in the crackdown on protests that broke out following the month’s presidential elections.

“We’ve been given the titles of people who had been beating and torturing people,” she explained in a declaration, ” the Associated Press reported.

“We’re planning a list of law enforcement officers that have to participate in lawless repressions.”

The list was declared as it appeared Tsikhanouskaya will travel to Brussels on Monday to seek out support in a meeting of EU foreign ministers.

The Belarusian opposition claims that the August 9 election was rigged for President Alexander Lukashenko, who won the sixth semester with over 80 percent of their vote.

Official results gave Tsikhanouskaya only 10 percent. She afterward left neighboring Lithuania under pressure from the government.

She stated that the record could be printed and delivered to”Ukraine, Turkey, Russia, EU member nations and the United States”.

Many European nations and the USA have condemned acts of violence against peaceful protesters in Belarusian cities lately.

Tsikhanouskaya explained the record of officers could be appointed following the protester Alexander Taraikovsky, who died the day following the election. The opposition says that he had been shot dead.

Police originally asserted Taraikovsky, was killed by an explosive device he planned to throw officers, but picture video footage of this instant he expired showed he wasn’t holding anything once he dropped to the floor.
