Lawyers of a presidential candidate Andrei Sannikau, a European Belarus coordinator Dzmitry Bandarenka, journalists Iryna Khalip and Natallia Radzina, met with their clients for the last time on 29 December 2010 when their clients were filed charges.

All attempts to meet with the prisoners of the KGB prison failed. There is no information about their state of health.

We remind that 21 persons are kept in the KGB pre-trial prison. They are charged with 'organizing and participation in mass riot'. What is meant is a peaceful rally of protest against fraudulent election results of 19 December 2010, which was brutally dispersed by special task forces.
