On 4 June the Brest Region Court considered the appeal filed by activist of the Belarusian Leftist Party “Fair World” and member of the Trade Union of Radio Electronic Industry Aliaksandr Dzenisenka against the a ruling of the Leninski District Court of Brest.

The activist intended to hold a picket against his house rent and high percents in state loans for house-building on 17 March. However, the deputy head of the Brest City Executive Committee Viaclaslau Khafizau banned the action, and the Leninski District Court upheld his decision.

Though the applicant undertook the responsibility for the public health, order and cleaning of the territory after the picket, the court stated that the ban was lawful as he hadn’t concluded service agreements with medics, police and communal utilities, thus violating provisions of notorious ruling of the Brest City Executive Committee #1210 of 30 June 2011.

As the regional court left the verdict standing, Mr. Dzenisenka intends to file an appeal with it head, Tamara Suchok. In general, he is going to pass all court instances to prove the rightness of his position.
