Minsk Leninski Borough Court Considers Suit to “Narodnaya Volia”
On 5 October Minsk Leninski Borough Court finished the consideration of the suit of the public corporation “Alliance-media” to the newspaper “Narodnaya Volia” and Leanid Levin.
The court satisfied the demand of the plaintiff to exact from the defendant additional court expenses that appeared during the previous trial (concerning the decision of Leninski Borough Court of 18 February on the case of the publication “Bandit Treatment of Leonid Levin by Sergey Atroshchenko’s “Obozrevatel”).
We should remind that similar decision was issued by Minsk Leninski Borough Court on 29 September, during the consideration of the suit of the entrepreneur Siarhey Atroshchanka to “Narodnaya Volia”. At that time judge ruled to exact from the newspaper 776 thousand rubles for compensation of additional court expenses (the case concerned the publication “What Business Feels Well in Belarus?”).
According to Belarusian Association of Journalists, both of the court decisions can be complained against.
