Lawyer Tomasz Wilinski, supported by the NAM team, files an application against Lukashenko and his accomplices at the International Criminal Court in The Hague
Warsaw lawyer Tomasz Wilinski filed a complaint with Poland’s National Prosecutor’s Office in late December alleging genocide and crimes against humanity committed by citizen Aleksandr Lukashenko and his accomplices.
As planned, the Polish lawyer, supported by human rights organisations and the National Anti-Crisis Management, is submitting a similar application to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. The application contains 160 pages of legal substantiation and 40,000 pages of documents in an appendix.
The application is filed on behalf of a large number of citizens of Belarus, including Pavel Latushka.
In its statement, Vilinski’s law firm urges the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague to launch an investigation. The suspects in the statement are citizen Aliaksandr Lukashenko, Ivan Tertel, Mikalai Karpenkaŭ and other representatives of various Belarusian power structures controlled by the dictator.
The head of the NAM team Pavel Latushka noted:
— This is an important statement, which, together with other tools, should prompt the leadership of various countries to take more legal action: to submit applications to the International Court of Justice on behalf of governments, to declare suspects wanted by the universal jurisdiction and others. Even before conviction, the International Criminal Court, after analysing the material submitted, has the power to issue arrest warrants and declare the regime’s representatives wanted by Interpol.
The National Anti-Crisis Management thanks Tomasz Wilinski for his contribution to the struggle of Belarusians for freedom and democracy in Belarus.
