According to the wife of Siarhei Kavalenka, Alena Kavalenka, her husband is in a critical state and doesn't receive the necessary medical aid.

At present Mr. Kavalenka is kept in the psychiatric department of penal colony #3 in the Vitsebsk region in connection with the long-term hunger-strike.

Lawyers of the Belarusian Helsinki Committee addressed the Vitsebsk district prosecutor with a request to check the legality and reasonableness of Kavalenka's placement to the psychiatric department of the prison hospital, as well as correspondence of the conditions in this institution (medicines, equipment and personnel) to his state.

As far as there exists a real danger to Siarhei Kavalenka's life because of the duration of the hunger-strike, human rights defenders ask to conduct the inspection as soon as possible.
