His lawyer did not manage to meet the imprisoned activist in Viciebsk.
Zmicier Dashkievich has been removed from a detention center in Viciebsk, Nasta Palazhanka, the girlfriend of the imprisoned leader of an opposition youth organisation, says.
“When the lawyer and I arrived at the detention center [on September 19], we were told that Zmicier Dashkievich was no longer held there,” said Ms. Palazhanka, who is deputy chair of Malady Front.
“We know that he received newspapers on the morning of September 18, which means that he was still in the jail on that day,” she added.
The administration of the detention center refused to tell the lawyer to what correctional facility Mr. Dashkievich had been moved. “After his transfer is over, his father is to receive a notice saying where Zmicier is,” Mr. Palazhanka said.
Mr. Dashkievich was moved to the jail from Correctional Institution No. 13 in Hlybokaje earlier this month.
In a closed-door trial held on August 28 in the Hlybokaje prison, the 31-year-old Dashkievich was found guilty of persistent violation of prison rules under Part One of the Criminal Code’s Article 411 and sentenced to a one-year prison term. The remaining four months of the previously imposed prison term were included in the new term.
