A human rights activist from Baranavičy Siarhei Housha filed a complaint to the General Prosecutor against a verdict of the Baranavičy City and District Court, the determination of the Board on Civil Cases of the Brest Regional Court and the decision of the deputy chairman of the Supreme Court A. Zabara.

All of these courts rejected his complaints about the actions of the Baranavičy City Executive Committee that had banned the picket he had intended to hold on December 10, 2014. The human rights activist decided to appeal to the government agency that oversees the correct and uniform application of laws.

Siarhei Housha totally disagrees with the decisions of the courts and the Baranavičy CEC. He believes that the latter illegally banned his picket, dated to the 66th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In the complaint, the human rights activist noted that all courts are
consecutively ignore that the Baranavičy CEC has violated the law on mass events, as it does not state the reasons for which the picket was banned, and that the local officials also violated the legal terms of response to his application.

Mr. Housha draws the attention of the General Prosecutor's Office to the fact that the courts of three instances ignored his explanations on the illegality of the requirements on the part of the executive committee of the applicants to enter into agreements with the police to maintain public order during mass events, as this isn't required by Regulation of the Council of Ministers of March 5, 2012 № 207. But the most absurd, according to Sergei Housha are the explanations, given at court by representatives of the Baranavičy CEC that in his application he failed to indicate the measures related to health care and cleaning of the territory after the picket.

“I attached the copies of the service contracts with the polyclinic and the housing economy, but the judges “didn't see it”, points Mr. Housha.
