Mahiliou: forced sponging of Aliaksei Paulouski
Several weeks ago, social activist Aliaksei Paulouskiapplied to the administration of the construction trust №12 with the request to employ him in the trust, since he was concerned with the introduction of the tax on spongers and had no means to pay it.
“Though I could work for free, the administration of the trust considered that it was better not to have any affairs with me. This demonstrates once again that I am unemployed for political grounds.
I have already prepared an appeal to the prosecutor's office and the Leninski District Executive Committee of Mahililiou due to the failure of the trust to answer me in the language of the address, Belarusian.
Mr. Paulouski also points about a funny thing, reflected in the written reply. “The trust administration considered that the Belarusian word “muliar” (“mason”), sounding similar to the Russian “malyar” (“house painter”), denoted the latter, and answered that they needed no painters. “Not only they don't know the laws, they also have problems with understanding the Belarusian language,” points the social activist.
Let us remind that Aliaksei Paulouski can't find a job for several years already. He has repeatedly been sent to various construction organizations of the city by the Mahiliou city employment center, but was told that they had no need in his services every time. He is not employed because of his active citizenship in defending workers' rights and control over the compliance with the safety norms on the construction sites. Mr. Paulouski is also known as an initiator of many high-profile court cases.
