7:54, — society
The Ministry of Justice ruled to withhold of 90% of prisoners’ incomes.
This refers to the convicts, who are serving the punishment of imprisonment or life sentence and have to compensate for the damage caused. The said regulations are established by the resolution number 159 by the Ministry of Justice of Belarus as of 15.10.2013, which introduced changes into the instruction on the execution procedure, Ezhednevnik reports.
In particular, the document rules that the limitations of the charges from the wages and similar incomes do not apply when alimony for underage children are to be paid, as well as when convicts have to compensate for the damage caused by their crimes, moral harm or the damage to life and health of a citizen, related to the crime.
At the same time depending on what the money are withheld for from a debtor, law enforcement officers must keep the debtor with 10 to 30% of the income.
Thus, when alimony is withheld for underage children, the debtor keeps no less than 30% of the income.
If a law enforcement officer exacts the debt from a convict, sentenced to imprisonment or a life sentence and obliged by the court to compensate for the damage caused by the crime, moral harm or damage to the life and health of a citizen, then such a convict keeps only 10% of the income from now.
In the came when the court found a person guilty of committing a crime and obliged the person to compensate for the damage, but sentenced the person to a punishment different from imprisonment, such a convict is from now on allowed to keep no less than 30% of the income.
It is worth noting that before the limitations on the amounts withheld from wages and similar incomes did not apply only to the cases of alimony for underage children, when the debtor was allowed to keep no less than 30% of the income.
