JUSTICE MINISTRY WARNS LEW SAPEHA FOUNDATION
The Ministry of Justice decided that Mahilow branch of the NGO had violated the law by letting members of unregistered organizations participate in the seminars.
Uladzimer Shantsaw, head of Mahilow branch of Lew Sapeha Foundation, told RFE/RL the organization carried out seminars in cooperation with Jan Busch, activist of the German Young Socialists. Jan Busch was deported from Belarus for political reasons. “We were punished for cooperation with a German expert, although all claims of the authorities are artificial. The law does not prohibit anybody from taking part in seminars. The Justice Ministry is obviously executing the order, which came from the “top””, -- Uladzimer Shantsaw says.
