Political prisoner Eduard Lobau, who is serving a 4-year prison term in the Ivatsevichy penitentiary "Vouchyia Nory" received the permission for a three-day meeting with his mother. The meeting was appointed on the next weekend.

"Eduard phoned me almost immediately after the information that his counsel would visit the penitentiary appeared. Having no contacts with the son for a long time, we started getting anxious. Six months have passed since the time of our last meeting, that's why his application for another meeting was granted," said Maryna Lobava.

According to her, the head of the penitentiary prohibited her to pass Eduard a food parcel after the meeting.

Bear in mind that Eduard Lobau was detained the day before the presidential election 2010, on 18 December 2010, together with the "Young Front" leader Dzmitry Dashkevich. The both of them were charged with beating a passer-by (malignant hooliganism) within the framework of a fabricated case. As a result, Mr. Lobau was sentenced to 4 years in prison, Mr. Dashkevich – to 2 years, and then got one more year for alleged violations of the prison regime.
