Authorities Want to Try Pastor Hancharenka
The pastor of the New Life Church Viachaslau Hancharenka has received a summons from Maskouski district prosecutor’s office of Minsk. On 19 February at 4 p.m. he will meet with the deputy prosecutor Zmitser Zyrianau, who wants to draw up a violation report, because the believers did not let in representatives of the fire service despite the prosecutor’s warrant.
Then the violation report will be passed to court. If the court finds the pastor guilty, the latter can be fined about 350 US dollars.
Bear in mind, that the position of the parish remains the same: the officials won’t be allowed to enter the church till the illegal ruling of Minsk city executive committee is reversed and the building will receive the official status of temple.
