Liubou Kavaliova

Liubou Kavaliova, the mother of the executed convict Uladzislau Kavaliou, didnt receive an answer of the KGB pre-trial prison administration towards her inquiry within the legal term (one month). In her letter to the KGB head Vadzim Zaitsau she writes that his subordinates violate the presidential decree about citizens' applications.

"On 30 April I sent a letter to the head of the pre-trial prison of the KGB, demanding to pass me my son's recordings. Uladzislau put something down before each court sitting and then – when he studied the court minutes together with the lawyer... At the end of December he sent a letter in which he asked me to do everything possible to save them! However, after the execution I was sent all Ulad's things, but the yellow folder in which he kept the notes, was empty. The pre-trial tirl prison of the KGB hasn't answered where are these notes. I don't know what to think about it: may be somebody has stolen them and intends to trim money for them? That's why I ask the KGB head Vadzim Zaitsau to discriminate in this situation and find out why his subordinates don't ask me in the due terms. They violate the law "On Applications of Citizens", and I am convinced that the guilty must be punished," says L. Kavaliova.

"We should remember that the national security of our country is ensured also at the expense of taxes. I, a citizen of the Republic of Belarus, have promptly paid taxes for many years. At least for this reason I have the right to a respectful attitude. That's why I insist on being given a substantial answer, as well as on punishment of the persons who are guilty of the bureaucratic procrastination," reads the appeal to the KGB chairman.

According to Liudmila Kavaliova, the missing notes can contain some important information about the "terrorism case", within the framework of which Uladzislau Kavaliou and Dzmitry Kanavalau were executed by shooting. She is convinced that the investigation and the trial weren't conducted properly and the verdict is unfair. She hopes that the case would be reviewed someday.
