Belarus: Lukashenko’s sons + 158 More In New Visa Ban

Posted by Info on 29/01/2011

The new names are to join an old list, bringing the total to 158.
Viktor Lukashenko, a presidential aid on defence matters and a member of the country’s security council, is to be branded persona non grata in the EU.
To an attack on the Lukashenko family, Dmitry Lukashenko, a political nobody who runs the Presidential Sports Club, is also to be barred from entering the Union.

The 117 new names also include: Yury Zhadobin (minister of defence); Leonid Maltsev (the secretary of the security council); Vadim Zaytsev (the head of the secret police, the KGB); Vladimir Makey (Mr Lukashenko’s chief foreign policy advisor); Grigory Vasilevich (the prosecutor general); and Vladimir Andreychenko (the head of the lower chamber of parliament).
The new list also comprises: the 24 heads of the regional and central election committees; 30 lawyers; and 10 journalists, dubbed “Lukashenko propagandists” by one EU diplomat.
The pre-existing register, numbering 41 names, including Mr Lukashenko himself, was suspended in 2008 but is to be re-instated.
