How it is possible to lead judicial check on the destroyed administrative case?

Such question was set by Valery Levaneuski to Minister of Justice of Belarus. The leader of entrepreneurs has received two mutually exclusive answers. One answer is from chairman of Lenin court of Grodno in August, 2007, another from the vice-president of the Supreme Court of Belarus in October 2007.

Valery Levonevsky has appealed against in the Supreme Court against one of the penalty in the form of arrest for 15 day, imposed him for the organization of mass meeting in 2004. And, at inquiry in Lenin court of Grodno he has received the answer №6015 from 8/3/2007, that to give the information on administrative case they can not, since case is destroyed in connection with expiry of the term of storage and correspondence on this question is stopped.

And the Supreme Court of Byelorussia in the answer from 9/21/2007 №02a-449 approves to the leader of entrepreneurs, that it has checked up materials of administrative case and consider, that penalty is imposed correctly.

Nothing surprising, that the Supreme Court has supported the colleagues from regional court and has left the decision about attraction to administrative arrest in force.

Another is surprisingly – it is possible to study administrative case when it is destroyed. Valery Levaneuski has addressed for explanations in the Ministry of Justice, to chairmen of Lenin court of Grodno and the Supreme Court of Byelorussia. Valery hopes, that men of science will explain this paradox.

May be everything is much easier? Judges formally concern to performance of the official duties, do not read complaints of citizens and are engaged in formal replies. For what then the state contains them?

Valery Levonevsky has appealed against penalized on him in the form of administrative arrest in the commission of the United Nations under human rights. In the given complaint it is marked not only illegality of imposing of penalty, but also miracles of the Belarus justice with revival of the liquidated administrative case.

Note: It is known, Valery Levaneuski has been accused of the organization of peace meeting on May, 1st, 2004 in Grodno and to him the maximal administrative punishment in the form of 15 day of arrest is appointed. 5/1/2004 prior to the beginning of meeting he has been detained and placed in an insulator. The court took place 5/3/2004. It was forbidden to Valery to use the lawyer. Judge Kozel N.G. has promised, having told: « You will recognize your fault – you will go home ». But, as it is usual, has deceived. Valery has received the maximal punishment for the organization of meeting on which he was not present. Valery judged directly in a building of Police station of Lenin area of Grodno. Session was secret; on the given process the judge has forbidden someone to be present, except for employees of KGB and militia.
These circumstances have essentially broken the rights of the politician:
- On the open litigation;
- On fair proceeding;
- On using services of the lawyer;
- On a call and interrogation of witnesses;
- On granting of proofs of absence of the fact of an offence.

We lead endurances from the decision about attraction of the responsibility of the leader of the Belarus opposition.
