Mikola Statkevich placed in penal cell
Mikalai Statkevich, presidential candidate who is
serving six-year prison term, was placed in the penal cell of Shklou colony #17
for 5 days. The prisoner doesn’t rule out an extension of this term, as he is
considered a “malignant violator” of the internal regulations of the colony.
The pressurization can be connected to Statkevich’s letters which he managed to pass to the press without the prior censorship in prison. Another reason can be the marriage of Mikola Statkevich and Maryna Adamovich, which was appointed on 20 December. Bear in mind that Mikola Statkevich wasn’t allowed to make any telephone calls despite the planned event.
