The Belarusian oppositionist, ex-presidential candidate Valery Tsepkalo, together with his associates, intends to collect documents for the Hague International Court of the United Nations regarding violations of the incumbent President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko. Such an initiative is being launched within the framework of the National Salvation Front of Belarus, Tsepkalo said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

We are now preparing documents on Lukashenko’s crimes against specific Belarusians. During his message, he confessed how he killed people without trial and investigation, said that he had given Sheiman (Viktor Sheiman - General Prosecutor of Belarus in 2000-2004, head of the Presidential Administration of Lukashenko in 2004 -2006 - ed.) The team and he "killed these scum." I mean Gonchar, Zakharenko, Krasovsky and others. He actually confessed to killing political opponents," the politician said.

According to him, all violations of the Constitution, international agreements and criminal offenses committed by the incumbent President of Belarus will be collected and recorded, and then they will form documents for submission to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

Details of this initiative will be announced shortly.

This is a good initiative, I think, because after the court makes a decision, if Lukashenko visits somewhere abroad, he will be arrested as an international criminal,” Tsepkalo is convinced.
