Chairman in Volyn expelled journalist from polling station who reported about fraudulent ballots

29.10.2012, 04:01
In the village of Yarevysche Starovyzhivsky, Volyn region, the head of election commission № 070855 from the PR Ludmila Hrinchuk expelled from the premises newspaper journalist Vladimir Voloshin from Volyn Svoboda.
The incident occurred Oct. 29, 2012 around midnight. Police removed the journalist "because he recorded facts about spoiling ballots by bringing in extra tags."
During the counting process began the chairman personally wrote marks on ballots, thus making them invalid. The journalist recorded this fact, but when he tried to make a report of the offense, committee members ordered to expel the journalist, so he would not interfere with their work. Soon after, the commission, the majority of which are members of the ruling Party of Regions, decided to remove all journalists from the premises.
Journalists who were at the polling station brought police, assisted by one of the observers.
