Belarus Court Refuses To Bar Construction On Former Jewish Cemetery Sites

JTA reports that last week a court in Belarus  refused to grant an injunction against two construction projects on the sites of former Jewish cemeteries. The Tsentralny District Court held that it lacks jurisdiction to prevent construction of apartment buildings on two former Jewish cemeteries in the city of Gomel.  The court also refused to enjoin an ongoing project on the site of a former Jewish cemetery in the city of Mozyr.  The suit was filed by Yakov Goodman, an american Jewish activist who is attempting to preserve Jewish heritage sites in Belarus.  Authorities in Gomel said they did not have information indicating that the site was that of a cemetery.
