Belarus: People Who Didn’t Prevent Minsk Metro Blast Arrested

Posted by Info on 17/04/2011

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that during the investigation into the Minsk metro bombing people, because of whose negligence the explosion was not prevented, were arrested.

Lukashenko: They were detained. I instructed to interrogate them as criminals. How a person with a huge bag of 20 kilograms, carrying an explosive, passes by the police, by employees of the metro?”
“We arrested a lot of people who were under suspicion, demanded an alibi for all, interrogated everyone,” Lukashenko said. “We detained a lot of people for questioning for involvement in this explosion, and then apologized and released [those innocent].”

Belarusian authorities said on Thursday that a total of five suspects have been arrested following a blast that tore through a crowded subway station in the capital Minsk.
Lukashenko said he has no doubt ( even without trial!) that those detained were the real crime committers.

At least 13 people were killed and over 190 injured after a bomb went off at the Oktyabrskaya metro station, one of the city’s busiest, at rush hour on Monday evening.
