This information was received from his mother, Tatsiana Frantskevich. She knows neither what he has been punished for nor for what term he has been put in the penal cell.

“I found that he was put into a penal cell. It is not known for how long and for which reason. I will wait for a telephone call from him to find it out. Judging by the fact that all of them start being pressurized (maybe not everybody, but alt least some of them – Dziadok, Statkevich, Bialiatski) - I think the authorities want to morally break them.

In May 2012 Aliaksandr Frantskevich was sentenced to three years of imprisonment. He is kept in the high security penal colony “Vouchyia Nory” in Ivatsevichy. Human rights defenders consider him as a prisoner of conscience and demand his immediate release.
