Prosecutor's office of Bryansk province, 16 June 2016
The prosecutor's office of the city of Klintsy on a continuing basis conducts monitoring of compliance with the law on combating extremist activity.
It was established that in April 2016 in the city of Klintsy a 43-year-old local woman resident distributed the book "What does the Bible really teach?," which is included in the Federal List of Extremist Materials.
Because of this the city prosecutor opened a case against the woman for the administrative violation of the law provided for by article 20.29 of the Code of Administrative Violations of Law of the RF (production and dissemination of extremist materials).
By a ruling of the Klintsy city court of Bryansk province, the defendant was held administratively accountable in the form of a fine.
The court's ruling has not taken legal effect. (tr. by PDS, posted 17 June 2016)
