Sarajevo resident sentenced for alimony arrears

The Sarajevo District Court sentenced a resident of the district center for alimony arrears to seven months of corrective labor.

Court spokesman Elena Belova:

“A 41-year-old man has already been involved under Art. 157 part 1 (failure to pay child support) in 2021. Then the court sentenced him to imprisonment for 2 months and 7 days to be served in a penal colony. But after serving it, the man did not embark on the path of correction. He continued to evade alimony payments to his minor daughter. As a result, the total alimony debt amounted to 632,104 rubles.”

The court found him guilty under Art. 157 h. 1 and imposed a punishment in the form of corrective labor. In addition, 5 percent of the salary of the accused will be deducted from the salary of the state.

At the hearing, the man agreed with the prosecution in full.
