PUNISHED THREE TIMES. ARTUR FINKEVICH FINED FOR OFFENCE HE HAD SERVED 2 JAIL SENTENCES FOR
December 18 Artur Finkevich, Young Front activist, received the decision of Zavodzki borough commission for administrative offences. The decision, dated December 12, rules to fine Finkevich 60 thousand rubles (about 30 USD) for "distribution of printed materials with violation of the prescribed order" (Art 172 part 3 of the Code of Administrative Offences).
Finkevich committed the "offence" on November 10. He has already served 15 days in jail for that (the trial took place on November 27). However, then he was found guilty of violation of the prescribed order of organizing and conducting mass events (Art. 167 part 2 of the Code of Administrative Offences). In particular, being an official organizer of the action against the possible referendum on Lukashenka’s third term in office, he had spread leaflets with information about the action before Minsk city administration permitted it.
As it turned out, the police detained Finkevich and drew up reports not only for the "offence" he has just served his jail term for, but also for distribution of printed materials without output data. He learned about that only today, on receiving the commission’s decision about the fine by mail.
