Belarus to reinvestigate crimes in Armed Forces over last six years

Belarus will deeply investigate crimes in its Armed Forces that occurred over last six years and which investigation did not bring any result.

These are cases of death and bodily harm. It is possible that some cases will be resumed, and refusals to initiate criminal cases will be canceled.

This decision is caused by a wide public response after the death of private Aliaksandr Korzhych who served in the Pechi military unit near Borisov. Many people involved in former cases broke their silence under the influence of tragic events.

On October 25, the chairman of the Investigative Committee told journalists about the results of the forensic medical examination in the case of the death of private Korzhych. He said no bodily harm was discovered other than the strangulation furrow on his neck.
