Busting stereotypes: Mahiliou resident squeezes money from wife’s lover


A 36-year-old man created a social network account to blackmail a new ‘secret admirer’ of his wife, Belarus’ Investigative Committee reports.

On the Internet the cuckold took an alias and informed the rival of being aware of his love affair with a married woman. He also promised to reveal the details to the adulterer’s husband if the unlucky lover failed to pay $500. Although the blackmailer got the amount, he acquired a taste for easy money and demanded another $500.

But the man apparently thought the price for sex to be too high and reported the situation to the police. When the husband was receiving another sum of money, law enforcement officers arrested him.

A case was opened against him under Art. 208-2 (extortion) of the Criminal Code of Belarus.
