The Interior Ministry’s Department for the Execution of Sentences has banned the meeting of imprisoned Viasna leader Ales Bialiatski with his dying father, says his wife Natallia.

Ales Bialiatski’s wife says she still hopes he will be able to see his father, after an official of the Department promised to issue a decision on the possible short release of the human rights defender within 15 days.

Ales Bialiatski’s wife was earlier told persons in custody had no right to see their family member outside the detention facility.
