Today several human activists again tried to bring a parcel with drinking water to Mikalai Autukhovich, who is kept under arrest at Minsk pre-trial detention center #1. The administration of the prison refused to accept it.
Mr.Autukhovich who has a bad liver problem and has been on a hunger-strike for over a month, is not allowed to use pure drinking water.
‘They said they do not accept any parcels with drinking water,’ said human rights activist Valiantsin Stefanovich.
