The Belarusian Council of Ministers introduced amendments to the Decree on freeloaders which is kept secret.
The Council of Ministers is preparing changes to the Decree No.3 on the prevention of freeloading. It can be concluded from the letter received by the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Hramada). Its activists collected 10 thousand signatures against the Decree and sent it to the President’s Administration at the end of 2015. The reply has arrived from the Council of Ministers, Euroradio informs.
According to the letter, the Decree is not meant to force people to work and does not contradict the Belarusian Constitution. Changes to the Decree have been prepared. Probably, the changes have been prepared on the basis of citizens, MPs and state bodies’ appeals.
Let us recall that Aliaksandr Lukashenka signed the Decree No.3 “On freeloaders” in April 2015. The Decree was meant to encourage unemployed Belarusians to take part in the financing of state expenses.
