The leader of the Young Front, Zmitser Dashkevich, who is serving the sentence of a year and a half for taking part in activities of an unregistered organization, has been given a lighter work, to saw wood. Earlier he had to carry heavy logs despite of this illness.

According to Radio Svaboda, he told about this change in his letter to his friends and persons working for the same cause. Zmitser’s friends are worried that after discharge from the hospital such “facilitation” could cause further health problems.

As we have informed, Zmitser Dashkevich had been sentenced to a year and a half of a standard regime penal colony for “activities on behalf of an unregistered organization”.
