Minsk Tsentralny Borough Court Rejected Volha Zavadskaya’s Complaint
Two weeks ago Volha Zavadskaya, mother of the abducted ORT cameraman Zmitser Zavadski, filed a complaint against the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Belarus to Minsk Tsentralny Borough Court, being dissatisfied with suspension of investigation of the abduction. The court refused to consider the complaint. Volha Zavadskaya and her advocate consider it as a gross violation of the Constitution. N the complaint Volha Zavadskaya stated that her rights as a victim were violated: she wasn’t even familiarized with the suspension ruling. She demanded renewal of the investigation and punishment of the criminals. In his written answer to the complaint Judge Piatro Kirkowski informed V. Zavadskaya that the court wouldn’t consider her complaint. He proposed her to complaint to the Prosecutor’s Office against its own actions. Volha Zavadskaya treats this refusal as one more evidence that the authorities don’t want the fate of her son to be investigated.
