Civil activist Anzhela Kambalava, head of the Baranavichy city branch of the United Civil Party, maintains written correspondence with many political prisoners who have been convicted in connection with the protest action of 19 December 2010.

On 21 November she sent a parcel to corrective colony #13 in Hlybokaye, for the convicted leader of the “Young Front”, Zmitser Dashkevich. However, eight days after it she received her parcel back, together with a note explaining that she wasn't Dashkevich's relative.

Alena Tysevich, deputy head of the post department #10, wasn't able to answer why such parcels had been sent to prisons earlier, but were returned now?
