After the presidential election in Belarus, thousands of opponents of the regime fell victim to police violence. And the authorities refuse to investigate officials – even in cases of death. Now the Lithuanian public prosecutor takes over the task. The Prosecutor’s Office in Lithuania has opened a preliminary investigation against Belarusian government officials for alleged torture of pro-democracy activists. „We all have the same right to life and dignity regardless of our nationality,“ said Attorney General Evaldas Pasilis. Who is being investigated against?

Pasilis justified the jurisdiction of the Lithuanian judiciary with the universal jurisdiction, which allows the prosecution of crimes against humanity anywhere in the world. The Belarusian citizen Maksim Kharozhin had previously turned to the Lithuanian public prosecutor’s office and stated that he had been tortured in the custody of the Belarusian authorities.

Not a single investigation

Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tichanovskaya, who is in exile, welcomed the investigation and urged other European countries to join. „We call on all other countries to investigate the crimes of the regime against humanity,“ she told the AFP news agency in a telephone interview. No case should be forgotten. „The time of impunity for those who suppress peaceful demonstrators in Belarus is over. In future, any of them could end up on the Interpol list,“ Tichanovskaya’s adviser Alexander Dobrovolsky told the Belarusian news portal „Tut.by“.

Mass torture after Belarus election „I will beat you until you die!“

There have been demonstrations in Belarus since the presidential election on August 9, which was overshadowed by massive allegations of fraud. At the height of the mass protests against the 66-year-old head of state Alexander Lukashenko, more than 100,000 people took to the streets in Minsk every Sunday. More than 30,000 people have been arrested and thousands have been ill-treated and tortured within four months of the election. At least seven people died during the demonstrations or after their arrest, the number of unreported cases is likely to be higher. So far not a single investigation has been initiated.
