Svetlahorsk: Parents of Youth Activists Are Fined
Today, on 12 October Ivan and Illia Shylas’ parents have been fined 93 000 Belarusian rubles. The administrative commissions issued the ruling to fine the parents in absentia, thus violating the law. The father, Uladzimir Shyla, didn’t attend the commission’s sitting because he didn’t receive any summons. The law provides that in this case the defendant is to come to the next sitting. Nevertheless, the chair of the committee H.Piatrashka ruled to fine U.Shyla 93 000 rubles for distribution of stickers by his son Ivan. It is the maximal sum of fine for such violation. U.Shyla was informed about the fine by a letter of Svetlahorsk City Executive Committee. Now he has two weeks for paying the fine.
