According to decision of Brest Maskowski Borough Administrative Commission, Nina Davydowskaya will have to pay 49 000 rubles for distribution of printed production without issue data that “harms state interests”. This is the way the police qualified the fly-sheets, handed out by the BPF members on 10 December 2003, the International Day of Human Rights, near the check-point of Brest “Tsvetatron” factory. The fly-sheets called workers to defend their rights.

In spite of Nina Davydowskaya’s objections, the court didn’t satisfy her complaint and stated that distribution of fly-sheets without issue data is a violation of the Law on mass media. Nina Davydowskaya is going to complain against the court decision to the regional court.
