Adygea’s SC summons witnesses in "EcoWatch" case

The court session on contesting the fine for the absence of the “foreign agent” label in press releases of the "Ecological Watch for Northern Caucasus" (EcoWatch) was postponed until March 29 because of the summoning of additional witnesses, said Andrei Rudomakha, the coordinator of the “EcoWatch”.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on March 6, the "EcoWatch" received protocols of the “Roskomnadzor” (Russian Federal Service for Supervising Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications), reading that the “EcoWatch” had violated the article of the law on the activities of foreign agents. Andrei Rudomakha explained the violation by a technical error.

The fine was imposed for the fact that on September 14-20, 2016, the website of the “EcoWatch” posted four press releases, which contained no label that the “EcoWatch” had been put on the registry of foreign agents, Mr Rudomakha has explained.

Environmentalists claim that at that moment they did not know that their organization had been put into the registry.

Besides, the court and the administration made a number of procedural violations, Andrei Rudomakha believes.
