Another letter has been received from a human rights activist Katsiaryna Sadouskaia who is serving the sentence in Homel women colony. The human rights activist writes that a new group of women has been taken to the colony. Some prisoners have to sleep in a corridor, as there are no enough sleeping places in the wards. Besides, Katsiaryna informs she is not given insulin which is necessary for her.

Sadouskaia writes that there are many elderly women among the convicts, including women older than 70. Physically it is hard to them to get to the top of two-tier beds. There are other problems, including the shortage of exported medicines.

’She writes that there are not enough medicines. Insulin has been substituted by medicines made in Belarus, and now she has problems with her feet. All prisoners are treated only by Belarusian medications, they are not given foreign drugs at all,’ K. Sadouskaia’s husband said to RFE/RL.
