On September 3, leader of the United Civil Party Anatol Lyabedzka a notice saying the court of the Tsentralny district of Minsk seized his apartment allegedly for his failure to pay penalty for participation in the European March organising, held in Minsk on October 14, 2007.
The court decision says the politician, who has property right to the apartment, “is forbidden to perform any acts with the apartment”.
The court of the Tsentralny district court of Minsk ordered that Anatol Lyabedzka must pay debt to legal entities and the state that he failed to pay voluntary, according to the writ.
“This has all signs of organised and purposeful campaign,” the politician thinks. He received a writ three weeks ago informing that on August 6, the Tsentralny district court banned his leaving Belarus. “I have no doubts that judge Alena Illina fulfils someone’s order. It was enough to phone to the Savetski district court to learn al fines had been repaid by the applicants of the European March,” Anatol Lyabedzka said. “They also may have got the same information from a phone to the plaintiffs.”
A writ on ban of leaving the country and seize was sent only to the UCP leader. It should be reminded that Alyaksandr Milinkevich, Vintsuk Vyachorka, Viktar Ivashkevich, Yauhen Afnahel and Zmitser Khvedaruk were among the applicants for the European March on October 14, 2007.
“As soon as I received a court decision on ban on leaving I tried to get any comprehensible information from legal executive T. Kakhovich. I found out that she had dismissed. And all of a sudden, another surprise was waiting for me in the mailbox,” Anatol Lyabedzka said. He pays attention to the fact that although both writs on ban on leaving and seize were adopted by the Tsentralny district court on the same day, On August 6, they sent with an interval of three weeks.
The UCP leader also noted the fact that his competitor in the Staravilenski election district #105 is chairman of the Tsentralny district court Mikalai Samaseika.
“Instead of carrying on my “election campaign”, I have to spend time for other things in order no to lose my apartment. This is called “election” in Belarusian style,” Anatol Lyabedzka said.
