In accordance with the rules of fishing the use of one or various fishing tackles with the total number of hooks exceeding ten pieces is prohibited. However, a resident of Braslav town Valery Labut made up his mind to ignore this rule.
During a September day he set on Snudy lake not ten, but rather 143 self made hook tackles (“kalabashkas”). In the next morning he took the out of the lake along with 25 eels, but fishing out of eels by amateur fishermen is prohibited.
The violator was detected and arrested by employees of the department of operative reaction of the State Inspectorate. The legal bodies qualified its actions in part 4 of article 281 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus as an illegal fishing entailing the loss in an especially big amount.
The court of Braslav region considered the criminal case and set the punishment for Valeri Labut in the form of two years of imprisonment. However, it was taken into account that the criminal proceedings were instituted against him for the first time, and before hearings in the court he had paid off the loss in the amount of 125 basic values. Execution of the appointed punishment was delayed by two years. The illegally caught eels are put to the benefit of the state, and hook tackles were destroyed.
The court of Molodechno region took a decision in relation of two fishermen Oleg Chernyavsky and Sergei Shevchenko who stole 63 big eels during its marketable fishing on Narochanka-river.
Actions of Chernyavsky and Shevchenko were qualified according to part 2 of article 205 of the Criminal Code of Belarus as a secret property theft committed by a group of persons. Within the frameworks of this article the court appointed a punishment for the guilty persons in the form of one year of correctional works along with retention of 20% of earnings to the benefit of the state. 63 eels of the total weight of 63 kg were given to the State Unitary Enterprise “Narochanski”.
The desire of fishing the eel prompted a Gomel resident Sergei Shchukin to overcome a long distance from Gomel to the lake Naroch.
Understanding that eel fishing is prohibited for amateurs-fishermen, he, nevertheless, hoped that nobody would find him under water and having an aqualung. He “shot” 15 eels by means of a fish-spear.
The poacher was astonished, when state inspectors appeared in front of him on the bank. Non-availability of a certificate of the under-water hunter and a member’s certificate of the republican state public union “BOOR”, the use of a fish-spear, which is the prohibited fishing tackle, eel fishing – this is the list of violations provided to the violator of the nature saving legislation.
