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.

olinevich Тыповую для вязьняў з савецкіх часоў працу атрымаў у калёніі «Віцьба-3» палітвязень Ігар Аліневіч, піша Радыё Свабода.

Ihar Alinevich reads about GULAG and anxiously follows the events in the Ukraine through all accessible sources.

Ihar Alinevich: We are witnesses of new epoch

imagesThe most unbelievable things are possible.

Ihar Alinevich reads about GULAG camps in prison and uses all media available for him to watch the events in Ukraine, learnt from Ihar’s mother Valiantsina Alinevich.

– He is in a new correctional facility, Vitba. He was transferred to the general unit from a quarantine unit in July. He sent a couple of letters and a postcard. He doesn’t write much focusing mostly on daily routine. Of course, the atmosphere and feelings are absolutely different in the new jail in comparison to the Navapolatsk correctional facility, which was situated close to oil refineries. They had emissions almost every day. Workers go home after their shift, but prisoners have to breathe in these poisons. This correctional facility was opened 50 years ago. It is good that it was closed.

– Do prisoners here differ? (more…)

Belarusian prisoners’ news. June 2014, Infos sur les prisonniers biélorusses. Juin 2014

In the middle of July Artsiom Prokopenko parents will go to him for a long-term meeting. Administration of Mogilev colony allowed them to spend with his son one day, says mother of political prisoner Violetta Prokopenko.

Artsiom Prokopenko feels fine. “He says that all is quiet. Nobody does not touch him”, – says woman.
Soon it will be half of the term (3.5 years from 7 years), as Artsiom Prokopenko spent in colony. For this reason, the authorities can change the sentence and release him from prison earlier. Police even called political prisoner parents in this regard.

“But as Artem said, it is a standard procedure that means nothing”, – says Violetta Prokopenko. Her son does not expect to be released from prison after half of the term, but parents have this hope.

Ihar Alinevich’s book “On the way to Magadan” is published in 5 languages: English, French, Spanish, Czech and Russian. The Polish version is to be published by the autumn. The penal colony, where Ihar is confined is to be closed by the end of the summer. The prisoners are already awaiting the transfer to other colonies. Ihar asked people to stop writing him for this reason.

The trial of Dzmitry Rezanovich was to have happened on June 24th, but has been postponed for July 3rd for unknown reason. Dzmitry is awaiting deportation in Russia since March 16.


À la mi-juillet, les parents d’Artsiom Prokopenko vont aller le voir pour une visite de longue durée. L’administration de la colonie de Mogilev leur a permis de passer une journée avec leur fils, d’aprèsVioletta Prokopenko, la mère d’Artsiom.

Artsiom Prokopenko se sent bien. « Il dit que tout est calme. Personne ne le touche. » − dit sa mère.

Ce sera bientôt la moitié de sa peine (3,5 années sur 7) que Artsiom a passée en colonie pénitentière. Pour cette raison, les autorités peuvent lui accorder une remise de peine. La police a même contacté les parents du prisonnier politique à ce sujet.

« Mais comme l’a dit Artem, ce n’est qu’une procédure habituelle qui ne veut rien dire » − dit Violetta Prokopenko. Son fils ne s’attend pas à être libéré avant la moitié de la peine, mais ses parents ont cet espoir.

Le livre d’Ihar Alinevich “Sur la route de Magadan” est publié en 5 langues : Anglais, Français, Espagnol, Tchèque et Russe. La version polonaise sera publiée cet automne. La colonie pénitentière où Ihar est enfermé va être fermée à la fin de l’été. Les prisonniers attendent déjà leur transfert vers d’autres colonies. Ihar demande aux gens d’arrêter de lui écrire pour cette raison.

Le 3 juillet, Dzmitry Rezanovich -en prison en Russie depuis le 16 mars 2014- a été condamné à une amende de 15 000 roubles (320 €) et à être déporté de Russie. La durée de son interdiction de territoire russe n’est toujours pas claire.

La date de la déportation n’a pas été annoncée et il semblerait que ce ne soit possible qu’après le paiement de l’amende. Ses proches ont déjà les papiers pour le faire.
