A member of the Movement "For Freedom" Viktar Syrytsa sent a complaint to the prosecutor of the Brest region against the actions of the Baranavichy inter-district prosecutor, who, according to the activist, has failed to implement his duties.

The complaint states that by the ruling of the Baranavichy District Court of 31 July 2013 the ativist was found guilty of violating Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Offenses and fined 2 million rubles.

Disagreeing with such hasty and biased decision of the court, on 9 August 2013 Viktar Syrytsa applied to the Baranavichy Inter-District Prosecutor with a statement in which he asked to bring a protest against the judgment of 31 July 2013.

“I believe that the Baranavichy interdistrict prosecutor evaded from fulfilling his duties. I am certainly grateful to him for the explanations where and how I could apply for the protection of my rights. However, I asked exactly Baranovichsky inter-district Prosecutor to issue a protest against the judgment which was illegal from my point of view. I asked him to issue a protest, not to explain where and how I could apply in this case. And if there were no reasons to protest, in the prosecutor's opinion, he should have written about it in the response to my statement. However, first of all he was to have demanded the case from the court. By having not done it the prosecutor evaded from the implementation of his duty, thus violating the present legislation,” pointed Viktar Syrytsa.

That's why, on the basis of the above, and being guided by Article 55 of the Law "On Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Belarus" the activist asks the prosecutor of the Brest region to draw the Baranavichy inter-district prosecutor to the legal account.
