Today the Pervomaisky District Court concluded the consideration on the cases against two specialists from Germany — Gregor and Florian. A reason for the consideration was a complaint of their protection represented by Tatyana Kulbakina and Alexander Peredruk.
Let us recall that earlier the Directorate of the Federal Migration Service in the Murmansk region mulcted each guest of the transpolar capital 1,500 rubles for violation of rules of migration registration — according to the authorities, foreigners came with the purpose of the youth exchange, but held a seminar on information security instead.
Interests of the executive authority was represented by Mikhail Shlapak, the one who brought IT-specialists to administrative responsibility. During the process Shlapak explained to the court that the proceedings took place in the evening, so the access to the Migration Service was restricted, and he also said that the Germans didn’t ask for the admission of protection.
However, the court didn’t accept such arguments and overturned the decision of the migration service of bringing the citizens of Germany to administrative responsibility.
“The outcome was clear to me from its inception,” Alexander Peredruk says. “Almost all the story has nothing to do with the law. Despite the fact that the German citizens faced expulsion, the DFMS management considered the matter in private without the admission of protection. Only those grounds are enough to declare this decision illegal".
According to Tatyana Kulbakina, the decision of the Murmansk DMFS is illegal also due to the fact that it’s not clear why in the framework of the youth exchange the guests couldn’t participate in the seminar.
“Youth exchange is a term of wide comprehension,” Kulbakina explained. “We initially asked the consulate for a visa to conduct a seminar on IT-security, so the actions of the migration service were a surprise for us, but the court has put everything into perspective".
Now all the materials of the case will come in the DFMS of Russia in the Murmansk region once again for reconsideration.
