Civil activist Ihar Sluchak received a response from the Chairowan of the Homel Regional Court, Liudmila Mikhalkova, to his complaint. The young man drew her attention to the fact that   he had been found a delinquent on the testimony of a witness who, according to the documents had been a few kilometers away from the scene at the time of the offense. However, Mikhalkova paid no attention to it, thus admitting that the witness has the talent of teleportation.

Bear in mind that Ihar Sluchak was tried for “disorderly conduct” in August. The testimony against him was given by Siarhei Zamai, who has been repeatedly received administrative penalties, was registered with the police inspection as an under-age delinquent, and regularly used alcoholic beverages. This man stated that about 4 p.m. Ihar Sluchak pushed him in the shoulder in near Studentski Prayezd Street, and then insulted him with the use of obscene language. Despite the personality of the witness, the court found Mr. Sluchak guilty. The verdict was appealed at the regional court, but it gave no result.

After it, the activist filed an inquiry to Zamai's work, a locomotive depot, to find where this worker had been at 3.30 – 4.00 p.m. on 26 August. As it follows from the answer, Siarhei Zamai was at the locomotive depot on Haspadarchaya Lane, which is about five kilometers away from Studentski Prayezd, whereas according to the police report, he was on Studentski Prayezd.

Ihar Sluchak filed a complaint with the Chairwoman of the Homel Region Court after it. However, his verdict was left standing – the official didn't see any miracle in the man's existence in two places at once.
