The employment of the activist of the Belarusian Social Democratic party (Hramada) from Babruisk Taisiya Kabanchuk has been terminated.

Taisiya Kabanchuk worked as a stock keeper of Babruisk storehouse of Baranavichy poultry plant. Yesterday the administration of the poultry plant sent a fax copy of an order of dismissal to Babruisk. The activist believes that she has been fired because of provocations of the storehouse director Hanna Tarkan, with which she had bad work relations, RFE/RL informs.

Today Taisiya Kabanchuk has come to work. She believes she remains a stock keeper until she hasn’t been given the order of dismissal and hasn’t signed it. As said by Mrs. Kabanchuk, the director of the storehouse saw her and called in police immediately to expel her from the storehouse. By that moment policemen have questioned the activist.

Taisiya kabanchuk is a candidate for deputy of the Chamber of Representatives from the European coalition.

As the Charter’97 informed, Taisiya Kabanchuk is a deputy in Asipovichy constituency #89. Since 2007 she works as a stock-keeper of the storehouse #4 of Babruisk-based Baranavichy poultry plant.

After Mrs. Kabanchuk stated her intention to take part in the election, she was told at the plant that she could be dismissed under Article 42 part 5 of the Labor Code of Belarus (for unauthorized absence). ‘In fact, my director Hanna Tarkan told me to leave work earlier for several days. She was doing that on purpose. And later she told that I was absent from work without good reason. It was a trick against me. Earlier she complained herself that the administration was pressurizing her demanding to dismiss me. And now, before the elections, she has to fulfill this demand,’ Taisiya Kabanchuk said.
