The activist of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Yauhen Vaskovich served another ten-day term in the penal cell in the Mahiliou prison No. 4.

“At the end of July Yauhen was put in the penal cell and was released from it on 3 August. He was put there for ten days, he didn't even tell the formal reasons, as he is placed there very month,” stated the secretary of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Dzianis Sadouski.

Starting from May 2011, when Mr. Vaskovich started serving his prison term, he spent almost 200 days in the penal cell. According to Dzianis Sadouski, the prison administration continues insisting that he wrote a clemency petition for Lukashenka, whereas he blankly refuses to do it.

Yauhen Vaskovich was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment for setting fire to the doors of the Babruisk KGB office.
