11:28, — Politics
On 30 October the court of the Lenin district in Mogilev refused the activist of the Belarusian social democratic party Mikalai Zalozny in restoration on work.
The judge Valiantsina Lapatsina considered that all the disciplinary penalties imposed on Mikalai Zalozny during the last months of his work were legitimate as his dismissal itself.
Mikalai Zalozny says, that where the law meets politics, the latter always wins.
“My dismissal is politically motivated. The judge did not restore me at work as, I cannot rule this out, they whispered it to her which decision must be taken in my case”, - the BSDP’s activist says.
We would remind that Mikalai Zalozny worked as a locksmith in one of Mogilev’s dormitories. He started to have troubles at work after having joined the electoral team of a BSDP’s parliamentary candidate Leonid Padbiaretski in the time of the electoral campaign.
His supervisor Pavel Shyshou made him write a letter of explanation regarding to which oppositional party he belonged.
After that Mikalai Zalozny was deprived of bonuses several times. He was reported about on the daily basis. In the end he was deprived of all the bonuses and transferred to a different unit. Zalozny refused to sign a new contract which implied significant worsening of working conditions, after which he was fired.
