On 2 August officers of Minsk Leninski Borough Court attached the property of the editorial office of the “Narodnaya Volia” newspaper on the sum of 59 million rubles for execution of two court verdicts on compensation of moral harm: on the suit of the entrepreneur Siarhey Atroshchanka (15 million rubles) and the suit of former head of Belarusian TV Yahor Rybakow (50 million rubles).

The editorial office of “Narodnaya Volia” continues its work in the usual regime, though on the attached equipment. The newspaper has 10 days to pay the compensation to S. Atroshchanka, otherwise a part of the attached equipment will be sold. The court officers haven’t defined the term for payment to Yahor Rybakow yet, because the plaintiff is under investigation.
