MINSK, 25 June (BelTA) - The Belarusian Investigative Committee continues investigating the criminal cases against Sofia Sapega and Roman Protasevich, BelTA has learned.
“The defendants are making consistent confessions. Taking advantage of the opportunity provided by the law, they have petitioned for a pre-trial agreement to cooperate with the investigation. In the petition, they have pledged to assist the preliminary investigation, to expose accomplices, to do everything possible to make up for the harm caused by the crimes. Based on this, after considering the petition to change the measure of restraint, the investigation considered it possible to replace detention by house arrest," the Investigative Committee said in a statement.
