Tatsiana Seviarynets, the mother of a KGB prisoner Pavel Seviarynets, has to file complains against actions of workers of the investigative isolator of the KGB and against actions of officers of the procuracy in order to get answers to her concrete questions.

She was especially indignant at receiving a runaround from her complaint to the procuracy concerning unlawful actions of the KGB (State Security Committee). The answer reads that her complaint was forwarded to the KGB, though she had addressed KGB with an appropriate complaint back on 13 January.

As far as these runarounds keep coming from the Prosecutor General, Vasilevich, on 31 January Tatsiana Seviarynets visited the procuracy and demanded a meeting with him. ‘There I was told that at first I needed to meet with deputy prosecutors and address directly Vasilevich only if they would fail to solve my problem,’ says the woman.

On 31 January she also lodged a complaint with the KGB, demanding that her son was allowed to meet with a doctor and was given the medicines she has passed to him two times already.

Tatsiana Seviarynets also expresses her indignation at the recent statement of the procuracy concerning the results of a check-up of the conditions in investigative isolators.

According to Tatsiana Seviarynets, the authorities violate Article 48, part 23 of the Criminal Process Code which guarantees the uninhibited meetings of attorneys with their defendants, whereas Pavel Seviarynets hasn’t had a meeting with his attorney since 29 December. The internal regulations of investigative isolators of the state security organs of the Republic of Belarus are violated as well. For instance, it concerns correspondence (Tatsiana received only one letter from Pavel – No.5 for 12 January) and meetings with attorneys.
