Tallinn Deputy Mayor Arvo Sarapuu has complied with a ruling of the Political Party Funding Oversight Committee, paying the city government back 3,667 euros for an election ad in last fall’s election.

Sarapuu presented the committee with a report on his campaign for the local elections, which showed he paid the Tallinn municipal government 3,667 euros for electoral ads, uudised.err.ee reported on Wednesday.

The committee's May ruling said a number of local government ads in 2013 were of political nature and should be paid for by the politicians featured in the ads.

The ruling affected Mayor Edgar Savisaar and Sarapuu, but also Karin Tammemägi, Priit Kutser and Jaanus Mutli, all Tallinn municipality officials, and Tartu Mayor Urmas Kruuse. Except for Kruuse, who is a Reform Party member, all the officials are Center Party members.
