Activist of the anarchist movement Aliaksandr Frantskevich has been subjected to harassment from the administration of penal colony No. 22 in the town of Ivatsevichy, as other inmates have received threats and reprimands for communicating with the political prisoner.

According to Aliaksandr Frantskevich’s mother, he has had a clear record, but after a minor fault he was declared a “malicious offender”. Moreover, the prison administration has taken several measures to further isolate the prisoner. One of the inmates was reportedly put in a punishment cell for having relations with Aliaksandr.
