The applicant for the post of head of Belarus and the former head of Belgazprombank Viktor Babariko was charged, his lawyer Dmitry Laevsky said.
“Today we were with Viktor Dmitrievich, we were summoned for legal proceedings, in fact he was charged. Articles cannot be called to me. I can say that Viktor Dmitrievich intends to fundamentally defend his innocence, beliefs and an honest name, ”said the defender at RIA Novosti.
The State Control Committee (KGC) of Belarus reported the detention of Babariko in the case against Belgazprombank, initiated under the articles on “tax evasion” and “legalization of proceeds of crime.”
His property is seized. Babariko himself, who had already been recognized as a political prisoner in Belarus, said that the situation surrounding Belgazprombank was of political order. He is outraged by the illegality and groundlessness of his detention, as well as the fact that his right to legal assistance was violated. In total, about 20 people were arrested in the case, including the son of Babariko.
