Baranavichy-based entrepreneur and civil activist Mikalai Charnavus applied to the Baranavichy City Court with a request to find unlawful the re-election of the Council of the central market of Baranavichy. The matter is that the re-election wasn't conducted by the general assembly of the entrepreneurs, but by the administration of the market.

As he writes in the appeal, he applied to the city and the regional procuracies with the same request. "However, the prosecutor's of the Baranavichy district, Hrusheuski A.V. and Tochka A.T. didn't implement their duties and evaded from giving substantial answers to the questions put to them. That's why I decided to apply to the Baranavichy court, asking to annul the "re-election" to the market Council held on 18-20 December 2011 and oblige the defendant to return me the state fee, 105,000 rubles," explained Mikalai Charnavus.
