Student expelled from university for taking part in European organization
On November 24 Mr. Shauruk, the deputy rector of the university told Tatsiana Khoma, a student of the international economic relations department of BSEU, that she had been expelled from the university. Two weeks ago she was elected to the Board of the Union of National Students’ Association of Europe (ESIB), the largest European students’ organization that deals with the defense of the rights and interests of the students in Europe.
The official reason claimed by the university administration is that Tatsiana missed three days of academic studies without the permission of the dean's office to attend the ESIB Congress in France, which elected the new leadership of the organization. However, some university employees privately say that the demand that Tatsiana be expelled was received from the Ministry of Education because Tatsiana was elected to the ESIB Board.
