Court hearing on the forceful purchase of the church's building will take place on Friday
The court hearing on the subject of forceful purchase of the building in Minsk, Kovalyova, 72, which belongs to «New Life» church, which was stopped, has been reopened again.
The court hearing will take place on Friday, July 21st, at 11a.m. Remember that the last court hearing was on May 16th. That day the representatives of the Minsk City Executive Council could not convince the judge on the legality of their requirement. That was why the Minsk Highest Economic Court.s judge, Mr. Karamyshev had to stop the court case.
If the request of the mayor is granted, 35000000 belarussian rubles (16200 $) will be transferred to the «New Life» church.s account. After that, the Minsk City Executive Court will have the right to act according to its own judgement.
As Sergei Lukanin, New Life church.s lawyer has stated: .Considering that the Minsk Highest Economic Court.s judge, Mr.Karamyshev decided a previous case in disregard of the law and also reopened the court hearing on the subject of forceful purchase of the building .New Life. church in a hurry, this court.s judgement will most likely not be in our favour.
