Babruisk resident Kanstantsin Loktseu was fired on 17 January after taking part in the organization of last year’s People’s Assembly opposition rally and a subsequent conviction for alleged violations of the Mass Events Code.

On 2 April Babruisk District Court is to start hearing a lawsuit lodged by the pro-democratic activists against his employer, the administration of a summer children’s camp called “Mechta”. The lawsuit is based on findings by local labour inspection who said there were numerous violations in the procedure of Mr. Loktseu’s dismissal.
