Belarusian prisoners’ news. December 2014


As part of the investigation Mikalai Dziadok underwent psychiatric forensic examination in prison. Mikalai has been sentenced to 4.5 years of imprisonment within the frames of the so-called case of anarchists. He was found guilty in malicious hooliganism. On November 20, 3.5 months before his release from jail, a new action against him was taken for severe disobedience to the prison rules. Mikalai Dziadok faces a new prison term, up to 1 year.

He also has been deprived of a short date with his wife, allegedly for having created a conflict in his cell. It sounds weird, because it was after this conflict that he asked to be moved to a solitary cell, as he didn’t feel safe in the former one. (more…)

Belarusian prisoners’ news. Oktober 2014


Ihar Alinevich was put into a isolation cell on his birthday. All in all he had spent there 30 days in a row, allegedly for having refused to clean prison toilets. Recently he was granted a short date with his parents, who informed that he is feeling well and in high spirits. He is up to appealing the unfair punishment.

The amount of debt that Dzmitry Zvan’ko owed was finally paid. Despite of this, the question of amnesty has not been considered yet. In his spare time, he goes in for sports, reads books and learns English. Also, he got a chance to take a large product parcel.

Dzmitry Stsyashenka serves his sentence in the “open prison” and lives in a barracks type of dormitory (for 110 people) and works as a welder. Salary there is very small, but still enough for food. After work, he and all the others are locked in their barracks until the morning. Conditions in the camp, as he said, “basically normal”. No problems arose, as well as violations of the internal regime. His free time Dzmitry spends in the gym, by reading books (from the latest Tony O’Neill – General of the Red Army) and the Internet. Every weekend his girlfriend and friends visit him. Taking into account time spent in a custody pending trial, amnesty, which reduced the period on 1 year, and 4 months held in the camp, 1 year and 10 months is left until the end of the period. In January, possibly, the punishment may be replaced by more soft.

Artsiom Prakapenka have not called or wrote to parents for a long time. “About two weeks there is no news from him”, – says mother of prisoner Violetta Prakapenka. She suggests that his son may be transferred to another colony. Now Artem Prokopenko is in Mogilev colony № 15. Here, after three years of imprisonment, must be transferred another person involved in “Bobruisk case” Jauhen Vas’kovich. “Partners in crime can not be in the same colony, so my son can be transferred to another place”, – suggests Violetta Prakapenka.

Jauhen Vas’kovich, as his mother says, is still in prison in Mogilev. Some days ago she received a letter which was was sent out from prison. “The following letter, as my son wrote, he probably will sent from the colony” – says Rushaniya Vas’kovich.
