On 10 November Minsk Tsentralny Borough Court started the trial on the suit of Sviatlana Ramanovich, accountant of the Olympic reserve college, against Pressbol sports newspaper. The plaintiff believes her honor and dignity were insulted by the article Viestki z paliou (Field-news). Despite the fact that her surname wasn’t even mentioned in the article, he demands from the newspaper 14,5 million rubles of compensation. A month ago the chief editor of Pressbol Uladzimir Bierazhkou and the journalist Sviatlana Paramyhina spoke with Sviatlana Ramanovich at court, but didn’t reach a compromise.

Let us remind that now Pressbol is paying the compensation to the minister of finances, chair of gymnastics federation Mikalai Korbut. Minsk Tsentralny Borough Court sentenced the editorial board to pay 30 million rubles and the chief editor – 10 million rubles. Bierazhkou’s property was twice attached for execution of the verdict.
