On 8 December the term of investigation into the case of Vaukavysk entrepreneurs expired. The latest charge filed against the political prisoners is preparation to terrorist attack. Radio Racyja was told about the course of investigation by Autukhovich’s lawyer Pavel Sapelka.

‘The investigation has been almost finished, but the term of keeping under arrest has been extended till 8 January. It is extended to give the prisoner an opportunity to study the case materials,’ the lawyer said.

As said by Sapelka, the accused and their lawyers have read in fact half of the materials of the criminal case. Until the materials are not studied, the case cannot be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office and then to the court.

Pavel Sapelka has also informed that almost every day he visits his client, and informed about his health.

‘The thing that causes most concern is the issue of dental prosthesis which is not solved by anybody stubbornly. Autukhovich has serious problems with teeth. We write letters, but there are still no results.’
