Closed session will be held on August 28 in the penal colony № 13 of Glubokoe city.

This was reported by the press-service of the "Young Front".

Recall that the documents on criminal charges have been sent by the administration of the penal colony number 13 to the Investigation Committee at the beginning of July. A criminal case was initiated under the article "failure to comply with the colony's regime" (p.1 art. 411 of the Criminal Code).

Political prisoner, leader of the "Young Front" Zmitser Dashkevich faces up to one year in prison.

"Young Front" sees this as another attempt of the authorities to intimidate activists and break Zmitser Dashkevich.

Dashkevich was detained before the protest against the falsification of the presidential elections of December 19, 2010 and later sentenced for two years. He was supposed to be released on December 18 of this year.
