The Belarusian Presidential Guard
is a law-enforcement body that was designed to protect the President of Belarus
and other high ranking officials and officers. However, the United States State Department
stated that the Presidential Guard is a secret police
force under the control of President Alexander Lukashenko
. The State Department in 1996
stated the guard was allowed to use force "against the President's political enemies with no judicial or legislative oversight."
