Belarusian thieves "don’t dare show up here"
According to the Belarusian Minister of Internal Affairs, the existence of thieves in law should not bother the citizens, as it is under the control of the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime and Corruption.
Belarusian law enforcers control both already crowned thieves in law and those who could claim the criminal title. Igor Shunevich, the Belarusian Minister of Internal Affairs, spoke on channel Belarus 1 of the way the country’s law enforcement agencies are dealing with the organized crime.
According to Mr. Shunevich, the existence of thieves in law should not bother the citizens, as it is under the control of the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime and Corruption.
“The effort is made everywhere and every day, in a fairly rigid professional manner”, the Minister said.
Shunevich added that to date, the Ministry of Internal Affairs is aware of 6 thieves in law of Belarusian descent. All of them had been given the title abroad since they have no right to get their crown in Belarus, the Minister said. According to him, three of the Belarusian thieves are now in prison, two are abroad and "don’t dare show up here", and one is under preventive supervision in Slutsk.
According to CrimeRussia sources, in 2015 Belarusian prisons had four thieves, but in April 2015 they all were referred to as ex-thieves. Medvezhonok (Bear), Lebed (Swan), Pashtet Minsky and Mumu were then dismissed from their responsibilities under the decision made by a gathering involving Rovshan Lenkoransky, Adu Zugdidsky, Dato Surgutsky, Valter and others. Self-proclaimed Belarusian thief in law Den Bobruisky is also serving his time for the involvement in Sergey Molnar’s gang.
