MINSK, August 2 (Itar-Tass) — Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko demanded more effective work from prosecutors. "The Prosecutor General's Office is too carried away by theories and legislative research, limiting itself to narrow approaches, and not taking into account the interests of and interaction with other bodies," Lukashenko told a conference on Thursday.
As a result, prosecutors' proposals often tend to be declarative and argumentative; they were not well considered, especially as regards such aspects as expenditure, technology and human resources.
The head of state said the criminal situation had stabilized in the country in the recent years, to which prosecutor's offices had made a considerable contribution. "However, the law-enforcement system cannot remain static. It should evolve together with the society; it must be perfected in order to have the opportunity to timely and adequately respond to modern challenges," Lukashenko said.
He reminded that he had set the task before law-enforcement bodies to perfect their work, and carry out reforms in certain areas. "This concerns the Prosecutor General's Office, too, but the prosecutors do not seem to have complete vision of their role in law-enforcement which is undergoing restructuring," he said.
Speaking about lawfulness in the economy, the president noted that things were far from begin ideal. "Violations of rights and interests of economic entities occur in practically all spheres of the economy. There remain the facts of bureaucratic arbitrariness, restricted competition and unjustified granting of preferences. In general, the state of lawfulness in the economic sphere is far from ideal; your work in contact with the government is important here," Lukashenko said.
Corruption is among the most pressing problems, the president said, «I’m very much interested in what is being done to combat corruption," as well as in what interferes with law-enforcers' fruitful work.
