The administration of Ivatsevichy penal colony where the chair of the national strike committee Mr. Lievanieuski spends his 2-year prison term for alleged defamation of president refused to transfer him to a free settlement colony (it means that a person lives in a village under the police supervision, have the possibility to walk, meet with people and does unskilled work at a collective farm).

The official reason is that Valiery Lievanieuski was punished four times for different violations of discipline. One time he was put in a black hole for not wearing the prison uniform. Before that, Mr. Lievanieuski wasn’t granted parole for the same reason. He considers these events as revenge of the colony administration for his complaints against its officials he has submitted to different instances.
