Many civil representatives, authors and one of the co-chairmen of the Union of Belarusian Authors Mikhas Skobla were not allowed to the process of Union's liquidation.
Half an hour before the process of liquidating the oldest creative Belarusian organization at the suit of Ministry of Justice started many people gathered near the building of the Supreme Court. There were authors, journalists, civil representatives who came to support the Union. To get into the hall people had to pass radio-metal locator, hand in photo cameras, voice recorders, mobile phones, wait till the police puts down all the passport data, so there gathered a cue at the entrance. The policemen in mufti video recorded the people.
When a part of people passed the control point it was reported that the court hall is full and no one else will be allowed in. The indignant authors, one of the co-chairmen of the Union Mikhas Skobla among them, and civil representatives claimed to move the process into a larger hall, but in vain. So the process was not public but private.
