It is planned to put the maximum information content to the base about people ‘who participated or participate in unrest ever’.
“After the events on August 9, the Interior Ministry made a decision on the creation of the unified database all over the republic that would allow us to consider the information about persons who were detained or use this information for work in the future,” Kupchenya reported.
The unified database of the Interior Ministry of Belarus should help to enhance control and measures of response toward the partakers of protests and create a social profile of protesters. Besides, it will help to prepare statistics and reports about protesters.
According to Kupchenya, the algorithm of the database’s work is the next: for example, a person lives in Brest and participates in unauthorized mass events there; in a month a person arrives in Minsk for participation in the protests there. A person is detained, checked on the database and it is established whether or not this person was detained in Brest or participated in such events. Thus, it is established that a person participates in protests for the second time and it has significant importance for consideration of the case on the administrative violence in the court.
Protest actions in Minsk and other cities in Belarus have been running for five months. People stand against the results of the presidential election that took place in August. Back then, the Central Election Committee announced that Alexander Lukashenko won the race. The Belarusian opposition did not recognize these results; neither do the EU and the U.S.
