Art. 391 of the Criminal Code β€” Insulting a judge

Sentence: 2 years

Penalty: restricted freedom in an open penal facility ("khimiya")

Yauhen Pashaliuk is a resident of Kamieniec (Brest region). He was sentenced to two years of restricted freedom and sent to an open-type correctional facility for insulting a judge (Article 391 of the Criminal Code).

Several years ago, Pashaliuk caused a traffic accident, for which he received a fine. Yauhen decided to appeal the ruling through the court. The trial was conducted by the same judge, about whom Pashaliuk spoke unflatteringly in a messenger. In court, Yauhen expressed regret about what he had done and explained his action by his resentment against the judge.

On September 16, 2021, the convict was pardoned and released.
