Maskouski district court of Minsk ruled to fine the past of the New Life Church Viachaslau Hancharenka 250 000 rubles for non-implementation of the prosecutor’s ruling.

Bear in mind that in 2006 the city authorities tried to confiscate the church building (reconstructed cowshed at the outskirts of Minsk). The believers declared a hunger-strike and kept it till the authorities proposed to solve the conflict at the Supreme Economic Court. At the end of 2007 representatives of different state organs tried to enter the building. The believers stated that they would not let in any strangers till the conflict was solved.
