Der Spiegel: Belarusian dictators plane with golden curtains

Lufthansa will maintain the plane of the Belarusian dictator.

Aliaksandr Lukashenkas plane Boing-767 arrived in Hamburg on 9 November in the morning for technical maintenance by Lufthansa airline, the website of Der Spiegel magazine reports.

Soon after landing the machine with hull No EW-001PB was towed to the hangar Lufthansa Technik, the magazine reports. In October the workers maintained Boing-737 EW-001PA, which is also used by the Belarusian ruler, BelaPAN reports.

The Boing-767 formerly belonged to the Turkmenistan president Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow and was bought by the Belarusian party for not less than 124 million dollars. In has wide white leather seats and sofas, wooden trimming, golden curtains and precious metals and jewel are used in the bathroom.

Lufthansa Technik refuses to give official comments on the topic of Lukashenkas planes maintenance.

A representative of the oppositional Green fraction in Bundestag Anton Hoffrichter, who heads the parliamentary committee on transport, in a comment for Der Spiegel expressed his perplexity over why Lufthansa Technik is working for a dictator, who allows sentencing oppositionists to death penalties and beating demonstrations with sticks.

The German magazine highlights that Lufthansa Technik is not really picky in their choice of the clients: earlier in Hamburg the planes of the heads of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Equatorial Guinea were maintained.
