The activist wanted to show that the Constitution not only does not work, but it cannot even be honored in a public place.
On April 24, Hrodna UCP members headed by the regional organization’s chairman Mikalai Salianik held a memorial service dedicated to 40 days from the date of the funeral of the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus, Radio Racyja reports.
Many times Mikalai Salianik, against whom a multitude of protocols for alleged administrative offenses have drawn up in recent years and who has never been acquitted and been awarded huge fines, used to come to court sessions with copies of the Constitution. The chairman of the regional organization many times read out to the judges the articles of the Constitution, which guarantee civil rights to the inhabitants of Belarus, argued that the Constitution is the basic law of the state, but all in vain.
At last, having understood that the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus has no meaning for the judicial system of the state, Mikalai Salianik arranged its solemn burial in his private territory.
Thus Mikalai Salianik wanted to show that the Constitution not only does not work, but it cannot even be honored in a public place, there’s no possibility to celebrate its anniversary. In such a situation, there was nothing left but to bury the main law. April 24 marked 40 days from the time of the “funeral.”
