Deputy candidate threatened with fine for use of Mahileu city symbol


A deputy candidate
of the "Tell the truth" campaign said that no one made ​​any comments
when she printed her production and provided the layout to the district

On Monday,
the district commission No. 87 received a complaint at her from the Mahileu
city executive committee. The commission recommended that Zakreuskaya should correct
the mistake. Otherwise she will be fined and warned. The candidate herself said
that it is impossible to correct the propaganda materials: all flyers and
posters have already been distributed and pasted around the district.

HR defender
Barys Buhel states that the commission’s requirement is illegal, because the
city symbol was used not for the commercial purposes. A city symbol belongs to
the city inhabitants, it is not the property of the city executive committee,
said Buhel.
