Another Refusal to Register 'Young Front'
The justice department of Minsk city executive committee again refused to register Minsk city public association Young Front. It is already the second refusal to register the organization. Earlier the CEC justice department refused to register it for mismatches in the charter.
‘We corrected all defects at which the justice department pointed. Nevertheless, we were told that we were refused registration. Soon we will receive the written registration refusal and appeal it to court,’ stated one of Young Front founders Barys Haretski.
The activist considers such actions of the justice department completely illegal. ‘In the case the justice department of Minsk city executive committee found some other mismatches, it was to have warned us about them all during the first registration refusal’, he added.
At present two activists of Young Front¸ Yaraslau Hryshchenia and Ivan Shyla, are accused under article 193.1 of the Criminal Code, ‘activity on behalf of unregistered organization’. The organization leader Zmitser Dashkevich is serving 1.5 years of jail under the same charges.
