Hrodna Regional Court dismissed complaint of ‘Fair World’
On 6 October the Hrodna Regional Court considered the complaint of the local organization of the Belarusian Leftist Party Fair World against the non-inclusion of its representative Anatol Ivanchyk in the Hrodna Regional Territorial Election Commission.
The trial was attended by representatives of the Hrodna Regional Executive Committee, in particular, by the deputy head of the organizational and personnel department Siarhei Khatsuk, and an employee of the juridical department of this institution.
Having listened to the both sides, Judge Viachaslau Mikhnevich turned down the complaint of Fair World. The trial lasted for 50 minutes.
The representative of the Belarusian Helsinki Committee Raman Yurhel commented the court decision: ‘Nobody hoped for any sensation. The results of such trials are easy to predict. What is important – the criteria by which the officials of the regional executive committee and the presidium of the regional council had been governed in the choice of members to the commission weren’t voiced at the trial.’
