Three Barysau residents are still unable to find jobs after they were fired in the aftermath of the 2010 presidential election.

Iryna Pankavets, mother of Nasha Niva politics department head Dzmitry Pankavets, was fired by the administration of a local secondary school after she was sentenced to 10 days of arrest for participating in the 19 December 2010 Minsk post-election protest. Mrs. Pankavets says local employment office has so far been unable to help her.

Shortly after the election, Barysau authorities cancelled the licenses of two local entrepreneurs Mikhail Vasilyeu and Viktar Zvezdzin after they contributed to the activities of Uladzimir Niakliayeu’s Barysau campaign office.

Three more local residents involved in Andrei Sannikau’s and Uladzimir Niakliayeu’s campaign teams were forced to leave Belarus, having encountered harassment for their election-related activity.
