MINSK, 16 October (BelTA) – No procedural coercive measures were imposed on Russian Anna Bogacheva, Belarus Deputy Prosecutor General Aleksei Stuk told the media in Minsk on 16 October, BelTA has learned.
“No procedural coercive measures were imposed on Russian Anna Bogacheva. She remained at liberty," said Aleksei Stuk. Speaking on the reasons for the contradictory information, he said that mass media are not always intimately familiar with the subtleties of the legal language or the meaning of legal terms. “Or maybe our press secretaries failed to convey the information clearly,” he noted.
On 15 October several mass media outlets reported that Russian citizen Anna Bogacheva, who is on the U.S. sanctions list over alleged election tampering, was detained in a hotel in Minsk. Official representative for the Belarusian Prosecutor General's Office Dmitry Brylev stated that the Office would apply to have the international warrant for Anna Bogacheva invalidated in the territory of Belarus.More about Politics
