Entrepreneur fined equivalent of 56 000 US dollars for absence of hygienic certificate
On 9 October the Supreme Economic Court upheld the verdict of Vitsebsk oblast court by which Orsha entrepreneur Zhana Bokhan was fined 160 000 million Belarusian rubles.
Besides, some goods worth 1 million rubles were confiscated from the entrepreneur, all because she was working without certificate of hygienic registration. Zhana Bokhan says that during the two last years the numerous control organs didn’t demand such certificate from her.
Vikhat Harbachou, leader of the movement For free development of business, says that nowadays an entrepreneur has no defense against the control organs. The events in Orsha witnesses that the absence of stable normative acts on business lets the authorities use serious reprisals towards entrepreneurs.
