Ihar Simbirou, Asipovichy activist of the Teel the Truth civil campaign, has reportedly declared a hunger strike while serving ten days of arrest in Minsk detention center in Akrestsin Street, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports, quoting his former cellmate.

According to the ex-prisoner, the activist is sure that nobody knows about his arrest. Therefore, he is going to be on hunger strike until he receives news from outside the prison.
