enforcement officials illegally “expropriate” part of the pension for
participation in a “silent action”.
Last week, Svetlana Vergeichik was surprised
to find out that part of her pension was deducted to pay off the fine
for participation in the silent action on July 6, although the Minsk City
Court cancelled the decision issued of Oktiabrskiy District Court.
As you might remember, Our Generation’s
members Svetlana Vergeichik and Galina Goncharik were detained on July
6, 2011 by the Palace of Culture (DK) Zheleznodorozhnikov. That ill-fated
night Svetlana found herself in hospital diagnosed with hypertension crisis.
On November 11, MsVergeichik found out that she is “a hoodlum” and has
to pay a fine of 700,000 Belarusian rubles to the state. And the fine
has been due for a month (the court trial was held without her presence
on September 2). On December 13, the Minsk City Court canceled the decision…
It should be also mentioned that Svetlana Vergeichik has filed several
complaints to the public prosecutor’s office against the rude treatment
by the law enforcement agents.
And now, in early March, Svetlana Vergeichik finds out that part of her
pension has been deducted to pay off the fine. It has turned out that
the law enforcement officials only received the information about the
Oktiabrskiy District Court decision but for some reason didn’t receive
the one issued by the Minsk City Court.
It is quite natural that Svetlana Dmitrievna tried to clarify the situation
with her pension. But in our country it is rather dangerous. Last night,
a district police officer “suddenly” visited the pensioner to find out
with whom she lives and how she lives…
Svetlana Dmitrievna is determined to fully clarify the situation.
