The tax inspection in Homieĺ has closed an administrative case against local human rights defender Leanid Sudalenka. The decision refers to the “insignificance” of the offense.

The human rights activist was accused of concealing 500 rubles (0.03 Euros) and 387,024 rubles (21 Euros) received on dividends.

The tax authorities have repeatedly harassed Leanid Sudalenka, asking him to report on his income on dubious grounds. In particular, he had to report his income and property for the last three years. In 2012, his wife, mother-in-law and son, who at the time served in the army, were ordered to submit a declaration of income and property for five years (2007-2001).
