The leader of the unregistered non-political organization “Partnership” Mikola Astreika will have to serve his sentence in the special detention center
On 17 December the leader of the unregistered non-political organization Partnership Mikola Astreika was brought to the special detention center in Akrestsina Street, reported Radio Liberty.
The thing is that on 29 October he and 70 members of the constituent conference were detained by special police squad. Maskouski Court gave Mikola Astreika 15 days of arrest. His deputies – Enira Branitskaia and Aliaxandr Bondarau – also received 15 days each. Later the city court reduced the term for Enira Branitskaia to 10 days. And Mikola Astreika was taken in ambulance from the special detention center to the hospital – he had a high temperature and problems with the kidneys.
Now after Mikola Astreika got better, the police officers visited him home when there were no relations and took him to the special detention center. As became known from the officers of this institution, Mikola Astreika will have to spend 11 days of the unserved sentence.
Mikola Astreika’s friends say that this is very symbolic when the leader of the organization exclusively involved with election observation was arrested on the second day after the start of the electoral campaign was declared.
