Bolotnaya Square case prisoners read Ihar Alienievich’s book
12:50, — Politics
Three copies of the political prisoner’s book “Going to Magadan” were sent to Butyrskaya prison.
The charter97.org web-site learnt about that from his mother Valancina Alienievich.
“Ihar was accepted to a local vocational college to learn sewing. He studied there for 24 days, but was expelled on his birthday, having told that he had to work, could not study. Since the very beginning it has all been beyond the legal framework: how he was kidnapped, held in jail, tried, how he has now been expelled from the college. This is all complete lawlessness”, - the political prisoner’s mother is convinced.
The woman emphasized that apart from that Ihar was secretly forbidden to make phone calls.
“Last time he made a phone call was in August. Even by the law, which the colony’s administration is not even going to observe, a prisoner must be provided with an opportunity to make phone calls several times a month. In his latest letter Ihar noted that he had received many congratulations on his turning thirty. He also wrote that Bolotnaya Square case prisoners were reading his book “Going to Magadan”. The thing is that three copies of the book were sent to Butyrskaya prison and one of the prisoners of Bolotnaya Square case, who is kept there, read the book and sent Ihar a letter. By the way, a woman, who is in correspondence with a political prisoner and the author of the “Letter from hell” Mikalaj Autukhovich, wrote me on Facebook that he had read the book “Going to Magadan” and it had made a great impression on Mikalaj. He even said that he would even “go on recce with Ihar”, - Valancina Alienievich noted.
We would remind that on 27 May 2011 the judge of Minsk’s Zavadski district Zhana Khvajnitskaja sentenced Ihar Alienievich to 8 years in high security prison. He is now serving the punishment term in the colony number 10 in Navapolatsk, which is notorious for its bad conditions. He together with Mikalaj Dziadok and Aliaksandr Frantskievich were charged with organizing a march near the Ministry of Defense building, attacking the Shangri La casino and a jail in Akrestsina Street, as well as setting on fire the doors of Belarusbank’s branch office.
