Entrepreneurs continue to be pursued

The court of Factory area of Minsk has sentenced entrepreneurs Ales Tolstyka and Ruslan Lucenka to 7 and 10 days of arrest, accordingly. Entrepreneurs have condemned for distribution of leaflets with the information on meeting which should pass on December, 10th on the October area of Minsk.

As has informed the press- centre of the Charter’ 97, the court over entrepreneurs was closed – on process have not admitted oppositional politicians and legal experts. Entrepreneurs have accused of infringement of administrative article «infringement of rules of the organization of mass actions». The sentence was taken out by Judge Elena Nekrasov.

Ales Tolstyko is the applicant of the action of entrepreneurs which should pass on December, 10th on the October area of Minsk. Entrepreneurs are going to make the protest against Alexander Lukashenka’s decrees about necessity of a re-registration of individual entrepreneurs for the private unitary enterprises, and also about an interdiction of employment of the people who are not near relations.

According to the leader of entrepreneurs Valery Levaneuski, arrest of entrepreneurs is a natural reaction of the authorities which in panic are afraid of open dialogue with entrepreneurs concerning the collected problems in a small-scale entrepreneurship, and any discontent among entrepreneurs will be rigidly stopped with the help for a long time the fulfilled repressive measures.
