Justice Bureau admits that Vitsebsk judges overstep the law
The appeals of the human rights
defender Pavel Levinau to the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of
Belarus were considered at a working meeting of the main justice
bureau of the Vitsebsk Regional Executive Committee.
As a result, Natallia Karablina, Judge of the Pershamaiski District Court of Vitsebsk, was pointed at the inadmissibility of further violation of process legislation during the consideration of administrative cases.
The justice bureau also filed a letter to the Pershamaiski District Court of Vitsebsk concerning violations of the criminal process legislation by Judge Andrei Preis, which manifested in the absence of reaction to the appeals against the refusal of to bring a criminal case, and neglect of the requirements of procedural law in the administration of justice. Some time ago, an assessment of the actions of Judge Preis was conducted by the deputy head of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Belarus Valery Kalinkovich.
As a result of consideration of the appeals of the human rights defender, the head of the Pershamaiski District Court of Vitsebsk, A. Andrushenka, was also pointed at the need for a greater control over the work of judges and more principled response to appeals of citizens on the actions of judges.
