On 11 October Baranavichy entrepreneur and social activist Mikalai Charnavus held a charity dinner at the local co-op market in Chernyshevsky Street, 11. Passers-by and entrepreneurs were treated pleased to treat themselves to hot barley with meat and mushrooms.

This charity event was held after the search the police held at his apartment on 10 October. The police were looking for evidence of organizing and conducting of an anti-corruption picket in Baranavichy on 30 September.

It's worth noting that Mr. Charnavus reeived charges under Article 23.34, part of the Code of Administrative Offenses for holding a charity dinner in 2012 near his workplace at the central co-operative market and on 19 November 2012 was sentenced to a fine of 3 million rubles by Aksana Sarakhman, Judge of the Baranavichy City and District Court.

Soon it will become known whether Mikalai Charnavus will be punished for serving this dinner.
