Babruisk journalist, convicted for an attempt to set KGB building on fire,has been punished for "breaking internal regime" once again.

Yauhen Vaskovich's grandmothers visited him in the Mahilei correctional colony this week. Let us remind you, the Babruisker was not present at the consideration of his appeal in court as he was in the disciplinary cell then.

"Yauhen told us that he had got to the disciplinary cell for the second time for refusal to hand in his Bible, — the prisoner's grandmother Tamara Vaskovich says. — They took away his books, notebooks, but he refused to hand in the Bible in Belarusian, and was punished for that. He asked to tell that he was holding on and did not betray his ideals".

The prisoner's mother Rushania Vaskovich has informed that the youngster and his family decided to fight to the end and to appeal the sentence in all the higher instances, including the President's Administration.
