Andrei Papou, a Homel activist of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy, has lost the job of plumber at the “Metalpolimer” enterprise, after the expiry of the probation period.

“There were wage arrears at the end of October, but we weren't explained the reasons. I told journalists about it, after which the information was published on the web. The enterprise administration found that it was me who had communicated this information, and refused to extend my labor contract,” explained Mr. Papou.

The unitarian enterprise “Metalpolimer” produces various equipment from polyethylene, details from thermoplastic polymers and non-standard metallic constructions.

Andrei Papou has already been expelled from work for his active civil position before. The administration of the enterprise where he worked earlier, used the practice of placing workers on the “Board of dishonor”. The activist struggled against this degrading practice and was fired for it.
