KGB chief: Court to hear Haidukou's "spy case" behind closed doors
Belarus KGB chairman Valery Vakulchyk insists Haidukou’s defenders will change their opinion after his sentence is pronounced.
"He did not manage to commit any crime because he was revealed in time. But it was a "classic" case; everything was neat," Interfax-West quotes the KGB chief as saying.
Haidukou’s charges have not changed, Mr Vakulchyk noted.
Youth opposition activist Andrei Haidukou from Navapolack was detained by KGB agents in Viciebsk in November 2012. He was accused of espionage. No details are available. Mr Haidukou’s relatives and friends maintain that his detention is connected with his opposition views. Human rights defenders are more cautious. They have called for the details of the case to be made public before moving to recognize him as a political prisoner.
