It is necessary to introduce the responsibility of those who give and take salaries in envelopes. This was stated on March 1 by Alexander Lukashenko, receiving the report of the chairman of the State Control Committee of Belarus Vasily Gerasimov.
“We cannot do without you for salaries in envelopes. We must put an end to this reptile once and for all, so that this hydra will never raise our head. I will not say that it blooms with us, but it is. And even individual merchants, businessmen, come out to me and complain: here we pay according to the statement, everything is as it should be (and from this the accrual goes to social funds). But they don’t pay there. They even name specific firms, ”the presidential press service quotes Lukashenka.
On the eve of the state mass media, there was a series of reports on the prosecution of the heads of private enterprises who paid salaries in envelopes. Pro-government experts demanded that the criminal liability for tax evasion be toughened.
