Minsk considers the refusal as legally unfounded
A statement, posted on the website of the General Prosecutor’s Office of Belarus on Wednesday, says that Latvia has denied the request for assistance in the case of genocide of Belarusians during the Great Patriotic War to Belarus.
“The Office of Prosecutor General of the Republic of Latvia with reference to Article 17 of the Agreement between the Republic of Belarus and the Republic of Latvia on legal assistance and legal relations in civil, family and criminal cases of February 21, 1994, refused to satisfy a request of the Office of Prosecutor General of the Republic of Belarus for legal assistance in the criminal case about genocide of the Belarusian people during the Great Patriotic War and the postwar years”, – reads the text.
Minsk considers unjustified the refusal of Vilnius and Riga to provide legal assistance in the case of genocide of Belarusians during the war. Russia actively assists Belarus in investigating the case of genocide of the population of the Republic during the war.Two Pakistani soldiers killed in Afghanistan border area
