On 15 May 2007 a four-year student Yury Aleinik was expelled from the Management Academy of the president of Belarus for alleged truancy. During his study Aleinik demonstrated an excellent progress. He stated that the expulsion was a revenge for his public position and political views. In April 2007 he participated in collection of signatures under a public appeal to the Chamber of Representatives for saving of social benefits to students. The activist also chairs Minsk regional organization of Frantsysk Skaryna Belarusian Language Society.

On 5 July 2007 Kastrychnitski borough court of Minsk dropped the case which had been brought on Aleinik’s suit against the Management Academy as the court declared that its consideration was beyond its competence. On 6 August the trial on Alenik’s appeal against the ruling of Kastrychnitski court laws considered by Minsk city court. The trial lasted for a quarter of an hour. Judge Mikalai Basau ruled to return the case to Kastrychnitski court for reconsideration.
