Shunevich: My attitude to any suicide is strongly negative

However, Ihar Shunevich refrained from answering the question on what he considered the reason of suicides among his subordinates.

Shunevich: "Suicide reason is a social question. In any concrete case we deal with specific reasons. And take measures to liquidate them."

The most recent case of a policeman's suicide happened this year in the end of January: policeman of Vorsha subdivision of the Interior Ministry's Defensive Department Lieutenant-Colonel Mikhalik shot himself at work. Two months before that, in the end of last October, operative officer-on-duty of the Frunzenski district police department shot himself and the KGB Colonel Kazak died. According to the calculations, 15 representatives of the law-enforcement agencies committed suicide within the last 5 years.
