The political prisoner wrote about it in a letter to his wife.

Representatives of the administration of the Mahiliou prison again persuaded Mikalai Statkevich to write a pardon petition to Lukashenka, breaking their 6-month silence. As said by Statkevich's wife Maryna Adamovich, the form of the proposal was quite cynical. They said: "Stop playing a gangster, get out and go to see".

Statkevich is the last candidate for president who is still kept behind bars. Bear in mind that at the 15 January press-conference Aliaksandr Lukashenka mentioned his rival at the election of 2010. He especially strongly criticized Statkevich for his electoral speeches on TV.
