According to the information of Lidzia Tsaluika, chief editor, to Belarusian Association of Journalists, soon the editorial office of Gazeta Dlia Vas newspaper can be evicted from the office in the town of Ivatsevichy that has been occupied by it for three years already. Ivatsevichy district executive committee intends to break the rent agreement with the newspaper. One of the committee workers who asked not to call his name informed L. Tsaluika that all local businessmen and state institutions were ordered not to lend any room to the newspaper.

The rented office belongs to the district domestic combine. In the talk with L. Tsaluika the chair of Ivatsevichy DEC Anatol Tkachuk stated that in September 2006 Dazhynki festival will be held in Ivatsevichy and therefore the editorial office will be needed for placement of the combine office.

Meanwhile, the newspaper is only one of about 50 renters of the combine room. There are also free offices the combine can lend. According to L. Tsaluika, other renters don’t have the problems the newspaper has.
