The cassation appeal of Valiantsin Stefanovich against the ruling concerning the exaction of the allegedly non-paid taxes from him will be considered by the Minsk City Court on 13 February. The hearings start at 3 p.m.

Bear in mind that on 16 December 2011 the Partyzanski District Court of Minsk fully granted the lawsuit of the Partyzanski District Tax Inspection of Minsk against Mr. Stefanovich, as a result of which the defendant was sentenced to pay 54,357,379 rubles of income tax and the state fee of 2,717,870 rubles.

The human rights defender considers the verdict, issued by Judge Veranika Abramovich, as groundless and unlawful. In his appeal he mentions a number of reasons for the reversal of the verdict of the Partyzanski District Court of Minsk and, being guided by paragraph 3 of Article 425 of the Civil Process Code of the Republic of Belarus, asks the cassation instance to reverse the ruling of the lower court and drop the case.
