BELARUSIAN SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY “NARODNAYA HRAMADA” WARNED
Social Democrats received a warning from the Justice Ministry. The reason is the legal address of the party, which is located in the apartment house. This is prohibited by the current legislation.
Formally the Justice Ministry has all reasons to issue a warning. However, in practice it is impossible for a political party to find an office in the office building and register the legal address there. The party leadership informed the Justice Ministry one month ago about their plans to move the legal address of the party to Brest, where they have an office in an office building. However, the Ministry did not take these circumstances into account.
If a party receives 2 warnings in one year, the Ministry of Justice might start the liquidation procedures.
