Brest Regional Court has ruled to uphold an earlier decision by Luninets District Court on a complaint lodged by Mikalai Karyshau, leader of the independent trade union at the Granite state-owned enterprise, following his dismissal in March 2012.

Human rights defender Uladzimir Malei, who represented Karyshau in court, says the dismissal was caused by his activities in the independent trade union.

Mikalai Karyshau says is going to continue appealing the dismissal at higher judicial bodies of Belarus, and the UN Human Rights Committee, in case all the domestic remedies are exhausted.
