After collective appeals have benn sent to four MPs representing Mahiliou, two of them, Aliaksandr Razganau and Eduard Siankevich, didn't consider it as necessary to give an answer to the activist.

To bring them to justice for violating the Law “On Applications of Citizens”, the activist of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Hramada) Leanid Padbiaretski and the adherents of the party Aliaksei Paulouski and Dzmitry Yaustratau filed appeals to the General Prosecutor's Office and the head of the Chamber of Representatives.

The situation is commented by Leanid Padbiaretski:

“MPs Stankevich and Vasilenka responded, whereas Razganau and Siankevich didn't consider it necessary to answer the collective appeal of 500 citizens. Do they care about us now? They have received their seats and forgot about the people's troubles.”

Mr. Padbiaretski reminds, that the appeals were filed to the members of the Parliament back in June 2013. Three months have passed, but there is still no responce.

Bear in mind that in the beginning of the year the Mahiliou activists of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party initiated a campaign for the adoption of the Law “On Public Hearings” with the aim to draw public attention to the constant neglect by the authorities of the views of residents about their plans, introduce in the legislation the compulsory procedure of public hearings ina number of cases, including the construction of new houses in the old districts and passing the land of a general use to new owners.
