Barysau: Soviet of Ministers forwards Aleh Matskevich's appeal to Ministry of Health Care
The Barysau human rights defender Aleh Matskevich
received an "answer" to his appeal to the Soviet of Ministry
concerning the unconstitutionality of the proposal of the deputy prime minister
Anatol Tozik to introduce a 5,000-fee for visits to Belarusian polyclinics.
"Your appeal, filed with the Soviet of Ministers on 5 March 2012, was forwarded to the Ministry of Health Care with the request to inform You about the results", reads the document, signed by the head of the department of letters and reception of citizens of the apparatus of the Soviet of Ministers A.Koushar.
Bear in mind that Aleh Matskevich had applied to the Soveit of Ministers in connection with the proposal of deputy prime minister to introduce a fee of 5,000 rubles for a visit to polyclinic, voiced at the concluding assembly of the Ministry of Health Care on 2 March 2012. Mr. Matskevih insists that this proposal violates Article 45 of the Constitution. He even sent the official a copy of the Constitution, so that he could read it in person. However, the answer of the Soviet of Ministers says nothing about the fate of the book.
