Leaked details of police officers in Belarus

A group of hackers leaked the names and personal details of more than 1,000 high-ranking Belarusian police officers. In response to the police crackdown on anti-government protests.

The leaked data included: the name, date of birth, the officer's department and title, in addition to details of 1003 police officers who were leaked via Google's spreadsheet.

Most of the entries are for senior officials such as Lieutenants, Major, and Captains. The hackers made the data available to the independent Belarusian news agency Nexta, which published an unedited version on its official Telegram channel.

The news agency has gained popularity among anti-President Lukashenko protesters after they denounced police brutality during recent anti-government protests. The news agency asked the observers to help verify the accuracy of the list and expanded its details.

Nexa said: If you know the criminal facts of a specific person on the list in addition to their personal information (such as address, phone number, vehicle number, and customs), please write to the robot.

The news agency added, "If the arrests continue, we will continue to publish data on a large scale and no one will remain anonymous under the mask."

A spokesman for the Belarusian Interior Ministry confirmed the leak in a statement on its website, but warned at the same time that infiltrators and leaks would be found and pursued.

According to several suspected hackers on the Twitter platform, the site was later closed due to a DDoS attack.

Belarus has been in turmoil since August 9, since the presidential election results were announced.

Officials said: The incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko won the sixth term with about 80% of the vote.

Opposition candidate Svyatlana Tsikhanowskaya accused the current regime of widespread fraud and claimed that it won at least 60% of the vote.

Large-scale protests erupted on election night and lasted two months. Although the police have cracked down violently, the protests still sparked many protests.

Testimonies and videos uploaded to social media platforms showed police beating protesters or arresting random people in the street, even if they did not protest.
