According to RFE/RL

The trial on liquidation of the Independent Institute of Socio-Economic and Political Studies (further referred to as IISEPS) started at the Supreme Court. The representative of the Ministry of Justice at the trial is Aliaksandr Kharyton who has personal relation to the liquidation of a number of public organizations. At the trial he wanted to achieve his aim:
-- It was decided to liquidate this juridical body for the following reasons. The first – it wasn’t situated on its juridical address, the second – they often failed to present the necessary information and documents. The third – the organization has non-statute organ, supervisory board. The fourth – they often used incomplete name of the juridical body. My speech is over, -- said Kharyton.

He also revoked a part of his pretensions, for instance that in the results of their research IISEPS distributed false information.

In his commentary the IISEPS head Aleh Manaieu disagreed with the accusations. Some of them he called “evidently absurd” and other ones -- “deceitful”.
