The political prisoner Mikalai Dziadok has been kept in the cell-type facility of Mahiliou for over a month already. He was transferred there from the Shklou colony, allegedly for repeated violation of the prison regulations.

It's a prison, it has it's own conditions. He will have the right to one meeting and one parcel a year. That's all," says the father.

During the stay in the Mahiliou prison Mikalai Dziadok was has been visited by his counsel. Before the New Year he was also visited by his wife. He has no complaints about health and the new regime.
