Minsk Authorities Evict Pastor Hancharenka and His Family from Their House
The pastor of the New Life church Vyachaslau Hancharenka has received an order of the Tsentralny District of Minsk. The pastor, living with his family on Repin Street in a private house, was suggested to ruin it.
The officials said the house had been built without permission, RFE/RL reports.
Vyachaslau Hancharenka lives there with his wife and three children. Some inspectors visited his house earlier to make sure there was no Protestants’ office there.
The New Life was struggling for a building for their church that the authorities wanted to ruin. They think the church is situated in the building that doesn’t satisfy fire regulations. Believers held a hunger strike for three weeks not leaving the building of the church.
