On 12 July the political prisoner, former presidential candidate Mikalai Statkevich phoned his wife Maryna Adamovich from prison No. 4 in Mahiliou. He told her about a case he witnessed in the prison.

According to the politician, at night heard cries in the Belarusian language. That's why he asked to check the situation of the political prisoners Mikalai Dziadok and Yauhen Vaskovich, who are kept in the prison.

Maryna Adamovich: "He said that twice, in the night of 6-7 July and in the night of 7-8 July, he clearly heard how someone hit the iron bars with a cup and shouted in a pure Belarusian language that he was tired of all this, he didn't want to be in the cell anymore, but would not write a clemensy petition."

According to Maryna Adamovich, Statkevich asked to learn about the situation around Mikalai Dziadok and Yauhen Vaskovich: how long ago they had meetings with their counsels and whether they were pressurized through other prisoners with the aim to obtain clemency petitions.

According to the politicians, prisoners are often pressurized quite severely in this prison, but it was the first time he heard cries in the Belarusian language concerning the clemency petitions.
