Unknown men in civilian clothes insisted on the expulsion of the activist.

Young Front member Uladz Makavetski studies applied arts in the Vitebsk Technology College.

Uladz became known for his political activity long ago. The college administration warned him against his activity. Uladz took an oath as a member of Young Front last year during a traditional action to commemorate the heroes of the Slutsk Uprising. Soon afterwards, representatives of the law-enforcement bodies in civilian clothes visited the college, the Young Front press service reports.

They brought photos showing Uladz at the rally and during the oath ceremony. The young man was called to the college administration and said he couldn't finish his studies (he is supposed to graduate in six months). He was offered to quit voluntary. Uladz hadn't had problems with studies, so he decided to take exams.

He failed two exams, though he answered well. The college administration doesn't hide the motives for the decision. The group's facilitator said in a private conversation she couldn't help, though she knew the real motives of the administration.
