About the application to the Prosecutor's Office against Lukashenka for genocide and crimes against humanity

Archive news

— We present to Mr Lukashenko and his accomplices a New Year’s present. This gift is as follows: the law firm Tomasz Wilinski in Warsaw has submitted to the National Prosecutor’s Office of Poland a statement of suspicion of committing crimes of genocide and crimes against humanity by citizen Alexander Lukashenko and his accomplices, including Tertel, Karpenkov, Balaba, about 20 other defendants in total.

— These 160 pages of statements are accompanied by the relevant materials: 10 thousand pages of documents about the facts of crimes in connection with the migration crisis on the border of Belarus with the EU, and 30 thousand pages of documents about the crimes committed against the Belarusians, as well as foreign nationals.

— In the statement, the Polish lawyer speaks about the facts of persecution of a national group of Belarusians on the grounds of language, as well as on the grounds of using historical white-red-white symbols.
The actions of the regime against the Iraqi citizens are also qualified as genocide.

— Crimes against humanity of which Alexander Lukashenko and his accomplices are suspected:
— crimes against the Polish minority;
— an act of terrorism related to the hijacking of a plane;
— threats against the leaders of the Belarusian democratic forces;
— Political assassinations committed by representatives of the regime.

— This application has been filed with the National Prosecutor’s Office of Poland. The Polish lawyer Tomasz Wilinski says it is important to inform the International Criminal Court in The Hague about the filing of this application. In his justification, the lawyer refers to Article 113 of the Polish Criminal Code. This article allows proceedings against foreign nationals residing abroad, if it derives from international treaties, international law and the Rome Statute establishing the International Criminal Court. The Law Office also plans to file an application for the crimes committed before the International Criminal Court in The Hague by the end of January 2022.

We are talking about three elements of our NAM strategy pressure: non-recognition of Lukashenko as president, recognition of Lukashenko and his accomplices as international criminals, and increased sanctions against the regime. This is necessary to force the dictatorship to stop mass repressions against the Belarusian people.

Happy New Year, citizen Lukashenko!
