Vitsebsk: prison administration refuses to accept water for hungering activist
Siarhei Kavalenka, a member of the
Conservative-Christian Party “Belarusian Popular Front”, has been on a
hunger-strike of protest for the 16th day already. This is how he
protests against the ungrounded, in his opinion, accusation of avoidance from
serving punishment. According to Alena Kavalenka, they once again rejected
drinking water for her husband. She thinks that this is a torture with regard
to a person who is on a hunger strike and has many chronic diseases.
Alena Kavalenka wants to obtain a meeting with her husband in order to convince him to stop the hunger strike. The lady is worried about his health which may deteriorate seriously.
