The Leninski District Court of Brest dismissed as groundless the appeal of the local activist of the “For Freedom” Movement Dzianis Turchaniak who demanded that the responsible officials be punished for refusing to provide information.

According to him, the executive authorities violated the law by refusing to provide information about the fate of two buildings in Savetskaya Street in Brest which have the status of historical and cultural monuments. Mr. Turchaniak is convinced that information about any construction works in such places must be public and the Brest Region Executive Committee has no right to conceal information about the essence of the investment agreement concerning such works.

At the same time the activist received an answer from the Brest Region Council from which it follows that its members have no possibility to familiarize with this agreements either. According to Dzianis Turchaniak, such answer is quite strange, as control of the executive power is one of the functions of members of the council.
