Judge of the Zhlobin District Court Sniazhana Halavenchyk dismissed the claim of the human rights activist Leanid Sudalenka in favor of a worker of the Belarusian Steel Works (BSW) Maryia Mirayeuskaya with the requirement to collect a pension from her employer for more than four years.

"I absolutely do not understand this ruling", said Leanid Sudalenka, who attended the trial. "
The lawyer, who represented the interests of BSW at the trial, presented a letters signed by the Director General of BSW, according to which a mistake was made and the pension was to be paid to the employee. However, the judge denied our legitimate demands."

At present Mr. Sudalenka is waiting for the declarative part of the judgement in order to appeal the verdict at the Homel Regional Court.

"If th
is does doesn't work, we will appeal to the higher authorities, including the Supreme Court", added the human rights defender.

Bear in mind that in May Ms. Sudalenka prepared and filed a lawsuit to the Zhlobin District Court in favor of the worker of the Belarusian Steel Works Maryia Mirayeuskaya with the requirement to collect a pension from her employer for more than four years. The woman did not know that at the age of 50 she was supposed to be accrued pension and the employer "forgot" about this fact, as a result of which the employee didn't receive more than 77 million rubles.
