MINSK, 20 December (BelTA) – Belarus will send materials of the criminal investigation into the crimes of the Polish security forces against refugees to international organizations, official representative of the Prosecutor General's Office Dmitry Brylev told the ONT TV channel, BelTA informs.

“Representatives of the Polish authorities have repeatedly and illegally pushed back refugees and continue doing so, they have used torture and other acts of cruelty. The law enforcement of this state has taken absolutely disproportionate steps, like using paramilitary, armed patrols, cordon, intimidating refugees with aircraft, tanks, other heavy weapons, and shooting firearms into the air, using explosions, blinding lighting, special means against defenseless people, including at night,” Dmitry Brylev said.
