Rehina Zimnitskaya, vice-Head of the lyceum defence committee, said that the parents considered the actions of the officials illegal, as a violation of their right and the right of their children to education in Belarusian language and demanded to set aside the governmental ruling of 25 June 2003 to liquidate the lyceum.

The committee hopes that in September the first court sitting will take place. “If we succeed in defending our right in the court and the illegal, groundless ruling of the Soviet of Minister is set aside, the educational establishment will preserve its status”, -- said Rehina Zimnitskaya, -- “we hope that the court will have enough courage to restore the justice”.

According to R. Zimnitskaya, in this case the lyceum will also return to the building in Kirava Street, 21.

In the case if the court doesn’t satisfy the suit, the lyceum defenders will have to take a license for non-State educational establishment.
