Law enforcement agencies will have super access to the payments of Belarusians. This follows from Lukashenka's decree "On measures to counteract unauthorized payment transactions."

The authorities explain it with the need to fight fraud, as there are a lot of fraudsters.

In the next six months the National Bank will create a database of unauthorized payment transactions and attempts to perform them. It will contain data that is subject to banking secrecy. Will this innovation really help the state in the fight against fraudsters and will it mean that people will use cash more and trust banks less?
