On August 3 a former candidate for presidency Aliaksandr Kazulin was taken from a prison hospital to Minsk remand prison in Valadarski St. The political prisoner was hospitalised last week for a medical check-up. Representatives of the penal institution in Kalvaryiskaia Street refused to inform Kazulins wife about the results of this medical examination.

I was told that all documents will be sent to Valadarski Street, Iryna Kazulina said to the press service of the United Civil Party. And there we could talk to a doctor.

Aliaksandr Kazulins eyesight dropped, and he asked to bring him glasses. On 4 August Iryna Kazulina plans to have an appointment with the doctor for a in a penal facility in Valadarski St. I hope to find out what eye doctor has said, she said.

The same day Kazulins mother plans to meet with him. She was allowed to meet with her son last week. However, he was transferred to a hospital. Wednesday is the only day for meetings there. But the administration, referring to a sanitary day in prisons, denied the meeting. I hope that mother wouldnt be told that permission for the meeting has expired, Iryna Kazulina said.

Aliaksandr Kazulin has informed via his lawyer that he had sent two letters home. But we havent received them, said Iryna Kazulina.
