Andrei Papou from Homel, an activist of the organising committee to create Belarusian Christian Democracy party, has lost his job.

He was employed by Metallopolimer firm as a mechanic for a probation period.

“Our wages were delayed for no reason in late October. I told it to journalists and the information appeared on the Internet. The firm managers learned that it was I who said about the delay and chose to terminate employment relationships with me,” Andrei Papou said to Viasna human rights centre.
