EurAsEC court to start in one month - chairman
MINSK, January 17 - RAPSI. The Court of the Eurasian Economic Community may commence working in one month, Chairman Evgeny Smirnov said at a Tuesday press conference in Minsk.
"The court may start working in a month," he said.
He also added that six judges have already arrived to Belarus, are completing their accreditation and are busy dealing with household and family issues.
Smirnov said the EurAsEC Court panel will consist of 10 judges, two from each community member - Belarus, Russia, Kirgizia, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.
The court will consider disputes only if they remain unresolved by the Eurasian Economic Commission. The case should then be referred to the EurAsEC court and the plaintiff will be charged a $1,000 fee, Smirnov said.
The court will be based in Minsk. Governments, private companies and businessmen will be able to appeal to the court in discrimination, competition law and equal business cases.
