The lawyer commented on the refusal of the CEC of Belarus to register Babariko

The lawyer of the election headquarters of Viktor Babariko Maxim Sign said policy for failure to register as a candidate in presidents of Belarus for no reason.

With the corresponding statement the Sign made at a meeting of the Central election Commission of the Republic after the Commission decided to deny Babariko to register as a presidential candidate. CEC head Lidia Yermoshina read a letter of the state control Committee (SCC), which implies that the politician of the Declaration on income and property is "mismatch", and in advance Babariko for the post of the presidential candidate was attended by foreign organizations. In particular, as pointed out by Yarmoshyna, the Declaration is not reflected in the actual ownership of Babariko material resources and property, as well as income from activities of a number of controlled Belarusian commercial structures.

"We want to draw the attention of the CEC that the Electoral code, there are reasons for cancellation of registration. If this information that have been made, confirmed by a court or documents, at any time cancel the registration of a person as a candidate. At the moment there is no reason," said Mark.

The lawyer also drew the attention of that presented at the meeting of Yarmoshyna's letter to the SCC "is the subject of the prosecution", but this information has not yet been analyzed by the court on charges not yet sentenced. "That is, at the moment to say that these data are true for no reason. If only this letter did not contain specific facts, which allow to testify that the information specified in the Declaration does not correspond to reality," said Mark.

According to him, under the Electoral code of Belarus, that's two groups of facts: either do not specify the income for the year 2019, in the amount of more than 20%, or not specified real estate and shares some organizations.

"As far as we can see from the information provided, there are no extracts from the register, does not indicate that Babariko... is the owner of some organizations. Provided that the alleged Belarusian companies he controlled, as we have already seen the publication of the data about founders - there is no Victor Dmitrievich, Babariko... If you really in the SCC deals with the companies that are ostensibly controlled by Victor Dmitrievich, it is possible that this is a subject for study in the criminal case, but it is not a direct base (for refusal to register a candidate – ed.) from the point of view of the Electoral code," - said the lawyer.

In June at the head office of Belgazprombank, who for 20 years headed Babariko, were searched. The SCC said that the Bank acted organized criminal group, the conclusion of money abroad.
