On 14 January the Baranavichy entrepreneur and civil activist Mikalai Charnavus filed a complaint to the head of the Supreme Economic Court against the verdict of the cassation panel of judges of 13 November 2012.

Mr. Charnavus asks the head of the court to reverse the verdicts of the court of the first instance, the appellation instance and the cassation panel of the Supreme Economic Court, and declare invalid the election to the Council of individual entrepreneurs at the Baranavichy cooperative market held in December 2011.

As we have already written, Mikalai Charnavus has been trying to appeal the results of that election for two years already. At first he went through the courts of general jurisdiction and then went to economic courts. As he stated at the courts, the members of the Council of entrepreneurs Yu. Zialenski, D. Haradnichy, A. Makar and others had been appointed to the Council by the market administration, not elected by the general assembly of entrepreneurs as it is required by the law.
