Belarusian Women’s Movement “Revival of Motherland" To Be Liquidated
According to belngo.info
The Ministry of Justice filed to the Supreme Court the suit for liquidation of the public association Belarusian Women’s Movement “Revival of Motherland”. The suit was signed by the minister of justice Viktar Halavanaw on 27 January 2005 as a result of a long-run check-up of the organization. Among the alleged reasons for the liquidation there are violations of the accountancy rules and contradiction of the content of certain documents to the reality. According to the ministry, the organization didn’t provide the necessary documents for the officials who conducted the check-up and answered the letter of the Ministry of Justice (dated 2 July 2003) with the demands to provide information and documents too late. By the way, at that time such letters with demands to provide the complete information about their activity were sent to hundreds of Belarusian public associations. It is also stated in the suit that the agenda which was registered in the minutes of a sitting of the organization didn’t correspond to the real agenda (some numbers of the points in the agenda were wrong and the decisions to exclude some persons from the organization were drawn in the wrong way).
Among the gross law violations the Ministry of Justice the justice mentioned that on 21 December 2003 (the eve of the Christmas and the New Year) the board of the organization ruled to “prepare congratulations to the organization members” but didn’t mention the names of the holidays in its ruling.
According to the information of the Ministry of Justice, in 2004 the courts of Belarus liquidated 38 public associations and in 2003 – 51 public association.
