The Young Front activist complains at ill stomach and asks his mother to send medicines to prison.

Artsiom Dubski phoned to his mother on Thursday. The political prisoner asked when she was going to visit his and asked to take some medicines for stomach. Artsiom Dubski’s mother thinks her son has faced problems again.

‘I worry about his mood. Last time, four days ago, his voice was more cheerful. But yesterday... Maybe he had a stomach ache or other problems. He said he wanted to tell me something, but didn’t say what exactly. He’ll tell everything during the visit,’ Alena Dubskaya told RFE/RL.

Artsiom serves his term of punishment in the penal colony in Mahilou. He got a two-week punishment in an isolation cell and was released from there last week. Alena Dubskaya received a letter from the prison administration, enlisting the violations for which Dubski had been sent to the isolation cell.

‘They state he ‘violated the internal regulations. He didn’t fulfill the rules and regulations of the colony and lawful demands of the administration, didn’t keep the cell clean, didn’t make the bed in due way, didn’t stand up before and greet administration representatives.’

Alena Dubskaya was also told that her son was deprived of the right to receive parcels from outside until 1 May. Artsiom Dubski is to be released from jail on 25 May.
