RFE/RL was informed about it by his father, Aliaksandr Dziadok.

An activist of the anarchist movement Mikalai Dziadok was sentenced to four years in prison for participating in attacks on a number of buildings in Minsk. He did not acknowledge the guilt. On 4 December the Shklou district court at its assizes decided to send Mikalai Dziadok to a closed-type prison. Human rights activists in Belarus consider the conviction of Mikalai Dziadok politically motivated.

On 5 December the Shklou District Court decided to send Mikalai Dziadok to a closed-type prison as a “malicious violator of the prison regime”.

The political prisoners Mikalai Statkevich, Dzmitry Dsashkevich, Mikalai Autukhovich and Yauhen Vaskovich are also kept in cell-type prisons.
