The court refused to consider the complaint of Volha Zavadzkaja about the actions of the officials of the republican Prosecutor Office. The appeal of the mother of disappeared politician about restart of the investigation on the grounds of “newly found circumstances” was taken by Sheiman personally.
Recently the mother of Dmitry Zavadzki, a stolen in July 2000 cameraman of ORT, received a reply from the court of central district of Miensk to her complaint about the actions of the officials from the Prosecutor’s office. In her complaint Volha Zavadzkaja asked the court to make the employees of the Prosecutor’s office to give her a motivated reply to her written request to start an investigation of her son’s case based on the grounds of “newly found circumstances” in connection with the speech of Aliaksandar Lukashenka. On July 20, 2004 during a press-conference Lukashenka declared that he has “some documents” and if he announces them now “Zavadzki’s case will turn into anti-case”.
The Prosecutor did not react anyway to the request of Zavadski’s mother. A reply came from the court – a decision of a judge of Central district in Miensk Hanchar S.V. which says “... as the applicant questions the actions of officials of the Prosecutor’s office of Republic of Belarus (…) the complaint cannot be considered because of lack of jurisdiction.
In the republican Prosecutor’s Office Volha Ryhorauna was said that there would be no reply to her complaint as it was taken by Viktar Sheiman, the General Prosecutor, personally and he did not give any order on this complaint.
