In his interview to Radio “Liberty” Robert Ortega, Head of Minsk IREX office, said that in the morning of 7 July they received a letter from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, signed by vice-Minister Herasimenka. The letter said that the re-registration inquiry was rejected and therefore IREX would have to close its Minsk office by 7 August. IREX is going to appeal against this complaint to court as soon as possible.
