Refugee’s body found on Belarus’ border with Poland

On March 26th, Belarusian law enforcement officers found the body of a refugee in the Berestovitsa District on the Belarusian-Polish border, the Investigative Committee reports in its Telegram channel

An investigative task force worked at the scene. Specialists conducted an inspection, and a backpack with the man’s personal belongings was found.

A forensic medical examination was appointed to establish the exact cause of death. The circumstances of the incident will be established by the Berestovitsa District Department of the Investigative Committee.

“Human rights violations, complete disregard of elementary universally recognised norms of morality on the part of European states doom dozens of refugees to death. Foreigners who need protection and help, who believe in the West’s promises of a better life become pawns in the hands of European punishers," the Investigative Committee said in a statement.
