The president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has issued a decree declaring Friday, March 9, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Belarus.

The aforementioned "Decree No.119 of March 1, 2012" thus amends the list of official public holidays in Belarus for the calendar year 2012, which was released by the government of Belarus, late last year (2011-12-29).

As usual in similar past cases (2011-03-01, 2010-04-30, 2010-04-01, 2009-03-13, 2004-04-15, 2003-12-18 and 2003-04-25), in compensation for the Friday, March 9, 2012, one-off non-working public holiday, the decree specifies that Sunday, March 11, 2012, will be a regular working day throughout the Republic of Belarus.
