His lawyer Maria Kavaleuskaya has found him there. However, she has not been allowed to meet the ex-candidate.

She has been refused the meeting because Sannikau is “a transit prisoner”. The lawyer is writing a complaint to the prosecutor now.

The lawyer was not even allowed to enter the Penalty Department – her complaint was accepted by the head of the Department refused to meet her.
Let us remind you that the political prisoner was transported away from Babruisk colony and his whereabouts were unknown. The Penalty Department has not provided the lawyer with any information and advised her to look for him herself.

Mahilyou prison is considered to be a transit prison. A detention centre for transported prisoners is situated there. They are brought there and spend some time in the centre before transportation.
