Mikalai Charhinets, head of the Committee on International Affairs and National Security of the Council of Republic, started legal action on defending honor, dignity and business reputation against a journalist and BAJ member Aliaksandr Tamkovich and a private unitary publishing enterprise “Vremia Novostej”, publishing a newspaper “Novy Chas” (“New Time”).

The suit was caused by a publication "General-Senator Mikalai Charhinets", appearing in “Novy Chas” on September, 24 2007 (№25). Mikalai Charhinets regards the information stated in the article to be false and insulting for him.

The claimant demands a recoup of 500 million rubles from “Vremia Novostej” and 100 million from the author of the article.

The first court session of the parties will take place on December, 5th.
