The political prisoner’s wife Maryna Adamovich reported of the incident.

Maryna Adamovich posted on her Facebook account that the political prisoner Mikalaj Statkievich was given unknown medications at the prison’s medical unit, which led to his feeling sick.

“Mikalaj was almost coercively taken to the medical unit on Saturday, where they ‘found” he had high blood pressure (Statkievich’s pressure is normally so good that they check tonometers on him). After the “medical assistance” had been provided, he started feeling worse. The next day as he fell, they did not rush to help him and lingered for 20 minutes, although the cell-mate kept knocking on the door al the time.

The next day his letter to me was confiscated… Why? Did they want for it to become known as late as possible? What else did they plan? Were they in a hurry? By the way, the next letter from him must have already arrived, but it is not there…”, the woman shared.
