The "Young Front" activist sent a letter to political prisoner Pavel Seviarynets, bchd.info reports.

In this letter, dated 1 June, he says that the prison administration began to fill out rules violation reports. Eduard Lobau thinks it is done to apply Article 117 of the Criminal Procedure Code (gross violations of prison rules by an inmate) on him.

The political prisoner thinks the prison authorities want to deprive him of visits, parcels and an opportunity to be released on amnesty.

“Eduard is a Catholic, a religious and brave person. He is one of the people who can be a model for a new generation of Belarusians,” Pavel Seviarynets says.

Eduard Lobau and his friend, "Young Front" activist Zmitser Dashkevich, were sentenced to 4 and 2 years in prison respectively. The "Young Front" activists do not admit their guilt and say their prison terms are a provocation organized by the secret services ahead of the 2010 presidential election.
