The hearing will start in Minsk Supreme Economic Court at 12 p.m. It will be open, art director of the publishing house Pavel Kastsyukevich told Euroradio.

The relations between publisher Ihar Lohvinau and the Ministry of Information spoilt at the end of September when Lohvinau was deprived of his publishing licence. Deputy Minister Liliya Ananich informed him that the licence had been annulled due to violations connected with the publishing of the album Press Photo Belarus 2011. Ashmyany District Court announced the edition extremist in April.

Ihar Lohvinau disagrees with the Ministry of Information. The publisher pointed at violations committed by officials and at the absurdity of the accusations.
