On Sunday, September 1, Pahonia journalists Mikola Markevich and Paval Mazheika started serving their forced labor terms in Asipovichy and Zhlobin.
Journalist Pavel Mazheika is the 91st resident in Zhlobin forced labor institution. He must find a job in the near future.
Mazheika will live in a bunkhouse, with WC and wash-stand per 2 rooms. The bunkhouse residents have to use a common shower. They cook in their rooms on electric stoves. The bunkhouse belongs to Zhlobin state building trust # 40. The residents have to pay the trust about 7 thousand roubles a month for dwelling.
The administration checks the presence of the contingent three times a day: at 6.30 a.m., 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. According to the person on duty, the forced-labor bunkhouse is situated near the post-office, which has a toll-line and access to the Internet; there are some shops and a dining-room in the area.
Mikola Markevich was sent to Asipovichy forced labor institution. The person on duty refused to tell us about the conditions at Asipovichy bunkhouse. We only know that the nearest post office with intercity phone line is situated in 15-minutes walking time from the bunkhouse.
