Recently the political prisoner Andrei Kim has had the first meeting with his mother, Tatsiana Kim. Andrei has been transferred from jail to prison hospital, because of rapid deterioration of the eyesight.

In order to meet with her son, the mother had to wait outside the prison hospital since 5.30 a.m. ‘The meeting lasted for about an hour’, she said. ‘Andrei’s eyesight is getting worse, his eyes are read. The doctors diagnosed an inflammation. I cannot say anything more than that, because it is very difficult to get any information from the doctors. The regime in the prison hospital is even harder than in the pre-trial prison. That’s why I don’t know even how much Andrei will spend at the hospital.’
