Belarus President: Investigative Committee shouldn't break into the house of a person from presidential personnel list

Alexander Lukashenko demanded that head of Investigative Committee Ivan Noskevich investigate into the "unpleasant situation" with the newly appointed chairman of the Orsha District Executive Committee. 

The President's instruction is to give assessment to the actions of operational services in relation to the official.

Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus:
Who gave the right to break into the house of a man whose appointment was agreed with the President? 

After all, the consent of the President is necessary in order for law enforcement agencies to conduct any investigations on a person included in the presidential personnel list. 

Am I right? They broke in there, they began to clarify something. The new man came to work and you marred his reputation. This is a bad signal. And why do I ask you to deal with this matter in person? I'm not saying that a criminal case is necessary there. This is up to you to sort out. Testimony is contradictory. Some say one thing and others say other things. 

Therefore, I would like you to sort it all out and report to me on this issue. I will send you the materials, the materials are already there, sort it out. I once again say: I need a realistic 'masculine' assessment of this situation.
