Mahiliou entrepreneurs to sue town authorities
Mahiliou Leninski borough court is due to try the case of ex-parliamentary candidate Ihar Kavalenka vs. Mahiliou town authorities.
The plaintiff is trying to register an action group to hold a local referendum. Kavalenka claims he is representative of the group. On 30 December judge Tarasava obliged Kavalenka to secure appearance of all the members of the group.
The referendum is aimed at challenging the authorities’ decision to build a sports center instead of the Krynitsa market.
The authorities’ negative decision was attributed to the ‘public interest’.
On 6 January the market began to be disassembled, all the vendors having been forced to leave.
