Belarusian accused of espionage in Ukraine complains to UN Human Rights Committee

The Belarusian who was accused of espionage in Ukraine has sent a complaint to the UN Human Rights Committee.

In it, he told about the use of unlawful methods of inquiry by law enforcement. Simply put, he was tortured to give evidence.

Dmitry Mironchik, Head of Information and Digital Diplomacy Department, Press Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus:
According to the information we have, a number of circumstances, to which the Prosecutor General's Office of Belarus pointed, and the methods that were applied to our citizen, cast doubt on the very fact of his alleged actions. Against this background, the Ukrainian interpretation of the situation and the charge brought against him are also questionable.

For now our official appeal to the Ukrainian side with a request for a medical examination of the detainee remains unanswered.

When talking to the consul, he also said that the authorized Ukrainian structures did not conduct a real check into his official complaints. This is not the way things should develop.

The Belarusian Foreign Ministry does not let the situation with the Belarusian countryman out of sight. He has been in custody for seven months. After the charges were brought, the arrest was extended until 26 February.
