The appeal of punishments in Penalty Executions Department have not led to positive results, complaints are considered formally and by one side, that also testifies to custom-made character of imposing of punishments. Answers to complaints on imposing of punishments are in the private case which is stored in system of Penalty Executions Department of Ministry of Internal Affairs RB, they are necessary for obtaining on demand for all-round and complete examination of complaint in essence.

During serving of punishment in the form of imprisonment I repeatedly in writing and orally addressed to respondents with the request to give me copies of decisions about imposing on me of punishments, to concretize infringements made to me and to acquaint with case materials. But I received refusals. After clearing from places of imprisonment to me also it was refused in right to get acquainted with documents on imposing on me of punishments in departure of punishment and to receive copies from these documents. That from my point is illegally since according to item 34 of the Constitution of Belarus, the state bodies are obliged to give to the citizen possibility to familiarize with the materials mentioning his rights and legitimate interests. According to the remedial law I as the person made answerable, have the right to get acquainted with all materials of case and to remove copies in necessary volume. “
