BREST, September 15 /ITAR-TASS/. The Interior Ministries of Russia and Belarus have pledged to fight against illegal car business by various means, including a “controlled delivery” method, Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev told journalists after a meeting of the unified board of the Interior Ministries of Russia and Belarus held on Monday.
Kolokoltsev said that prior to the meeting he and Belarusian Interior Minister Igor Shushkevich had signed an inter-state agreement on raising the efficiency of joint struggle against crime. The document outlines a plan designed to curb the activities of illegal groups engaged in car theft and legalize the automobile business.
“We can speak about some positive results. For example, we have exposed hundreds of so-called ‘twin’ cars which were stolen in Belarus and are now being operated in Russia,” Kolokoltsev explained.
Kolokoltsev said that a controlled delivery method which is widely used in fighting drug trafficking was also effective in thwarting illegal car business.
Without disclosing the entire method, he said that it helped revealing illegal channels of delivery of stolen cars and detaining the suspects.
For his part, Belarusian Interior Minister Igor Shunevich stressed the importance of cooperation in preventing illegal car business.
“Belarus is an outpost for illegal car transit. Inter-regional and trans-national groups are involved in this business. We should join our efforts if we want to fight it effectively,” Shunevich stressed.
