The women’s association “Initiative” sued to Homel Regional Economic Court against the decision of Homel District Executive Committee not to register the new juridical address of the association in a private house in the settlement of Yaromina.

During the preliminary court debates it was found that Homel DEC and Yaromina Village Soviet adopted this refusal on base of falsified documents and testimonies.

The economic court couldn’t decide on the case for a long time. Judge Valiantsina Puhachova explained to the plaintiffs that she couldn’t do it, as the Housing Code didn’t specify whether it was legal to register juridical address at living quarters.

Judge filed an inquiry to the Chamber of Representatives and received the answer that it wasn’t in their competence to decide. After this, Judge turned aside the suit of the “Initiative” to the executive committee. Absence of juridical address can result in liquidation of the association.
