Deputy head of the Baranavichy city organization of the Belarusian Leftist Party "Fair World" received a letter signed by the deputy head of the Baranavichy City Executive Committee Dz. Kastsiukevich.

This document informs the activist that he is not allowed to hold a picket against violation of the civil right to peaceful assemblies on 18 March 2012 as he failed to timely provide copies of service agreements with police, medics and the public utilities.

"The authorities have adopted so many rulings and laws that even one person cannot express an opinion on the events in the country or a city without bureaucratic procrastination," commented the head of the Baranavichy branch of "Fair World" Viktar Tsiapin.
