Crowdfund offers fee for jailing Belarusian Prez

Minsk, May 29 (TIWN) One of Belarus' most famous entrepreneurs is launching a crowdfunding venture to put long-time President Alexander Lukashenko behind bars, the media reported on Fridau.

Valeri Tsepkalo campaigned for the presidency in last year's elections, but fled Belarus before the polls after he grew concerned for his safety, the dpa news agency report said.

Now he has released a video on YouTube stating his intent to raise 11 million euros ($13.4 million) in a crowdfunding venture.

The money would be given to any member or members of the security forces who ensure that Lukashenko is put behind bars.

As of Friday, the effort has raised 60,000 euros.
