Members of the New Life Protestant Church keep opposing church building seizure by the city authorities, this time obstructing an inspection by Minsk city emergency situations service, the BelaPAN news agency reports quoting the church’s lawyer Siarhei Lukanin.
The eviction notice was served by the city authorities on 22 August after the Supreme Economic Court of Belarus resolved to seize the church building. However, court officers have not yet visited the church.
