The head of the Human Rights Centre "Viasna"  Ales Bialiatski has sent his first letter after a two week's silence.

The human rights activist was transferred from a quarantine unit to barrack No. 14.

“Belorusski Partizan” learned this from the wife of the political prisoner Natallya Pinchuk.

“I've received a letter from Ales today. It is dated March 22. He writes he was enrolled in the sewing brigade, but it's clear he will not sew there. He does not know what he will do there,” Natallya Pinchuk said.

Ales Bialiatski was sentenced to 4.5 years in a medium security penal colony and confiscation of property for alleged tax evasion. The judgement was delivered on November 24, 2011 by judge of the Pershamaiski district court Siarhei Bandarenka.
