“Dmitry Yuryevich, let’s do without self-reports. I would like to hear the main thing,” the Head of State said at the beginning of the meeting.

The President drew attention to the fact that he had previously given instructions on the prompt consideration of criminal cases of an extremist orientation and asked how things were going in this area, “We have had a lot of criminal cases of an extremist orientation. Figuratively speaking, you have even formed some ‘surplus’. We then agreed that you should promptly consider these criminal cases. What is the situation now?”

Aleksandr Lukashenko also mentioned the establishment of a cybercrime counteraction department within the Investigative Committee. “How does it work? I hear more and more information in our media that this is a very important area and, unfortunately, crimes in this area are not decreasing,” the Belarusian leader said. “Therefore, the corresponding division was set up. What’s the situation here now, how does it work?”

Another topic at the meeting of the President with the Investigative Committee Chairman was the state of affairs in the committee itself, work with personnel. The Head of State recalled that earlier, before the appointment of Dmitry Gora, there were certain alarming signals about the Investigative Committee, “Therefore, the leadership had to be brought to senses. You became the Chairman of the Investigative Committee. What has changed during this time? How does the department operate and how do particular employees work?” Aleksandr Lukashenko posed a number of questions.
