The administration of a detention center in Minsk on Tuesday refused to deliver food and hygiene items to the jailed mother of post-election protester Mikita Likhavid.

Alena Likhavid was sentenced to a jail term after she was grabbed by plainclothesmen during a so-called silent protest in Minsk on July 20.

The parcel for the woman was brought by the sister of another imprisoned post-election protester, Alyaksandr Klaskowski, who said that she had waited for four hours in scorching heat outside the detention center on Akrestsina Street to be told by a jail officer that the package would not be delivered to the jailed woman.

The officer said that another parcel had been allegedly delivered to Ms. Likhavid earlier in the day. He acknowledged that an inmate was not prohibited from receiving more than one package in one day but still refused to accept it. //BelaPAN
