New trial against Zmitser Dashkevich
10:03, — Politics
The court of Mozyr is expected to arrive at the penal colony on October 30 to hold trial over Zmitser Dashkeivch.
The leader of Czech-based international organization Young Front can be moved from the penal colony in Mozyr to a supermax prison, because Zmitser Dashkevich has been classified as a “persistent violator of prison rules”, BelaPAN news agency reports.
It's rather strange when he managed to violate the prison regulations, because Zmitser Dashkevich was thrown into a punishment cell and later into a cell-type unit just on arrival at penal colony No. 20 in Mozyr.
Dashkevich was sentenced to two years in a minimum security penal colony in March 2011 for beating two men. He served his jail term in Horki and then in Hlybokae. In August, the court of Hlybokae held the trial in the penal colony and found Dashkevich guilty of repeated failure to fulfil orders of prison staff. Dashkevich's jail sentence was extended by one year.
International human rights groups recognized Dashkevich political prisoner.
