ZHITKOVICHI, 28 April (BelTA) – Belarus President urged to take strict measures against alcohol abuse at a meeting in the Zhitkovichi District Executive Committee on 28 April, BelTA informs.
Heavy drinking is a serious problem that affects road traffic safety and causes workplace accidents and injuries. Thefts are another related problem, a law enforcement officer said at the meeting.
“This is why I am asking the heads of district executive committees to team up with prosecutors and heads of district offices of internal affairs and take measures. I urge you to adopt very tough measures,” the head of state said.
“We must root thefts out. Not only do thieves steal things, sometimes they negatively affect other people who do not do this. This is why we must introduce strict measures,” the president stressed.
“The police and the prosecutor general must sort things out with alcohol addicts. There is no other way. Senior officials also must act tougher on this issue,” Alexander Lukashenko emphasized.
“There will always be thefts and alcohol addicts. However, there should be a certain limit,” the head of state added.More about President
