Belarusian honorary consul in Lucerne: Libereco demands withdrawal of consular status

Libereco has sent a letter to the Swiss Foreign Minister, Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis, asking him to revoke the recognition of Hermann Alexander Beyeler as Belarusian Honorary Consul in Lucerne. In Libereco’s view, Beyeler’s behaviour, statements and business dealings are causing great damage to Switzerland’s reputation at home and abroad.
