Center Party member and former Põhja-Tallinn Deputy City District Elder Priit Kutser finally fulfilled the Estonian Supervisory Committee on Party Financing's (ERJK) demand to repay the City of Tallinn €1,234 for prohibited campaign advertising ahead of the 2013 local elections.
The lawyer representing Kutser forwarded the payment order to the ERJK last week, requesting that the committee end the enforcement proceeding initated on the basis of a Supreme Court ruling.
Last year, Kutser requested that the proceeding concerning him be called off and for the repayment to be waived on the grounds that he had been unemployed for an extended period of time and was visually impaired.
The ERJK's precept involved the advertisement for the opening of a new sports complex for which the City of Tallinn paid €1,234 ahead of the 2013 local elections. The Supreme Court rejected his appeal in cassation and Kutser was required to repay the money in full.
