Ministry of Justice admits that Young Christian Democrats really held their assembly
On 9 April the Supreme Court held a
sitting on the appeal of the registration denial, issued to the civil
association "Young Christian Democrats" by the Ministry of
"During the sitting, officers of the Ministry of Justice posed new absurd pretensions, which hadn't been voiced before, neither in the ministry's response, nor during the preliminary hearings," stated the UCD chairperson Maryna Khomich.
At the same time, as it was found during the trial, during its check-up the ministry made use of data which were at least two years old. In particular, the ministry stated that the home address of the deputy head of YCD Volha Kavalkova was incorrect, referring to the address at which she had been registered more than two years ago.
This time the ministry also refrained from statements that YCD hadn't held its constituent assembly. Its representatives stated they had no pretensions to it when they were proposed to watch a video from the assembly.
