“The Belarusian military court sentenced on December 30, 2013, Belarusian citizens A. Fenzelyau and Ye. Kochura on the counts of spying for Lithuania. They were sentenced to ten and eight years, respectively, for committing high treason (Part 1, Article 356 of the Belarusian Criminal Code),” State Security Committee press service head Artur Strekh said.
“Investigative operations and procedures held by the State Security Committee yielded irrefutable evidence of their criminal activity,” the spokesman stressed.
It was reported earlier that Fenzelyau and Kochura were taken into custody in March 2012.
