The Supreme Court dismissed a request of the “Young Front” organization asking to make a motion to the Constitutional Court for recognition of agreements signed by Alyaksandr Lukashenka in Moscow unconstitutional and threatening the independence of Belarus.

The “Young Front” press service reminds that according to Belarusian laws, persons or organizations can’t appeal the Constitutional Court directly. Only Alyaksandr Lukashenka, the “national assembly”, the Council of Ministers, the Supreme Court, or the Superior Economic Court have this rights.

The Supreme Court refused to file such a motion. It told the “Young Front” it can make a motion only if it decides on unlawful character of the above mentioned agreements during consideration of a concrete legal case.

The organization has already received an answer from the Superior Economic Court, which just re-addressed the appeal without consideration.
