According to Raskin, there is reason to believe that during the demolition of the trade stands were the violations of the rights of entrepreneurs. “In particular, the media reported about the failure to provide lawyers and owners of trading pavilions the documents on the basis of which should be the demolition of the buildings,” – said the Deputy.
He also claims that the owners of trading pavilions “there are documents on the property right, which means to deprive them of their property only by a court decision”.
