Maladzechna ‘miner’ stands trial


The incident occurred in September. The infringer sent letters to Maladzechna schools and said that they had been mined. He demanded $10 thousand to avoid victims among children. All schoolchildren were evacuated, the buildings were checked by specialists but nothing suspicious was found.

The police detained the infringer later. He worked for a local construction company. He wanted to compromise his acquaintance out of revenge but failed. The man is facing up to 7 years of imprisonment.

The miner is standing trial in Maladzechna District Court. Witnesses are being interrogated today.
