“Lohvinau” book-store sealed off due to extra-schedule examination
Minsk book-store “Lohvinau” has been sealed off due to an extra-schedule examination held by the Ministry of Dues and Taxes. As reported to RFE/RL by the book publisher Ihar Lohvinau, the examination is conducted on request of the Ministry of Information.
Last year the Ministry of Information deprived the publishing house “Lohvinau” of its license for publishing the album “Belarus Press Photo 2011”. April 18, 2013 Ashmiany District Court declared this edition extremist and ruled that its publication was a “gross violation of the law on licensing”.
