On 31 May, having returned to work from vacations, the member of the Belarusian Popular Front Party Uladzimir Tselyapun, a former candidate for the Homel Regional Council of Deputies at Palesskaya election constituency #43, received a notice about the termination of his labor contract since 30 January 2010.

Uladzimir Tselyapun works as the head of the technical department of Belaruskabel Joint Stock Company.

The activist had been working for Belaruskabel since 1976. That is, the length of employment at this entreprize is decent: 34 years. And there have been no admonitions to Uladzimir Tselyapun ever. Moreover, he received a higher education under the direction of the entreprize. And the last time the contract for the activist was extended for a maximum term, 5 years.

'I do not understand what's going on,' the nonplussed activist, thinking about the reasons of his contract non-extension and about his future plans.

By the way, at the latest elections of deputies to local councils Uladzimir Tseliapun was not only nominated as a party candidate to the regional council and district council through collection of signatures, but was the head of an initiative group of Franak Viachorka, a much talked-of soldier and a candidate for deputy.

According to Mr. Tseliapun, another reason for his dismissal could be that he has always taken an uncompromised position regarding the production of low-quality counterfeit goods with violation of the existing standards and technical conditions, as well as the use of low-quality raw materials for it. He also used to voice his opinion concerning the activities of the enterprise administration at the official sittings.
