Belarusian high court liquidates yet another NGO

The Supreme Court has ordered the closure of the Belarusian Union of Young Politicians, one of the oldest nongovernmental organizations (NGO) in Belarus , RFE/RL's Belarusian Service reported on April 21.

The organization was founded in 1992 and reregistered under its current name in 2000. The court agreed with the Justice Ministry's charges that the organization did not have a legal address for two years and used an unauthorized stamp, finding these charges sufficient for banning the NGO. Over the past year, Belarusian courts have reportedly outlawed 54 NGOs.
