Three officials of the executive committee vs. the newspaper “Tretiy sector” (Severodonetsk)
Three officials of the executive committee handed the claims on the protection of honor and dignity after the publication of the article “Referendum-phobia” in the December issue (2002) of the newspaper “Tretiy sector” (Severodonetsk). The total sum of the compensation equals to 13 thousand hryvnas. None of these cases is not completed yet.
At two court sittings on the claims of the executive committee officials against “Tretiy sector”, which have been already conducted, the officials handed the petition to carry out the consideration in Russian. The court rejected this petition and decided to carry out the trial in Ukrainian. Then it appeared that the Severodonetsk officials did not know the state language.
