At the same time, if the ex-president of the United States does not fully comply with the remaining requirements of the order by May 20, the decision will be resumed.
The New York state court stopped the action of the decision that former U.S. President Donald Trump should pay a $ 10 thousand fine for contempt of court every day, but ordered him to pay $ 110 thousand – the amount of the fine that has accumulated since the end of April, while the former American leader did not provide the materials necessary for the investigation. This was reported on Wednesday by CNN.
Judge Arthur Engoron concluded that Trump’s defense partially complied with the court’s order by providing additional testimony on the presentation of the requested documents, but the defendant must pay the required amount of the fine. “I want the fine to be paid, and it is $110 thousand,” the TV company quotes the judge as saying.
At the same time, if Trump does not fully comply with the remaining requirements of the order by May 20, the contempt of court decision will be resumed, and with it the accrual of further fines.
