Alyaksandr Frantskevich has been placed in the punishment cell for unknown reasons.
The political prisoner received 20 days in the punishment cell on February 19. A lawyer recently visited Alyaksandr Frantskevich in the penal colony, Radio Svaboda reports. Tatyana Frantskevich, the political prisoner's mother, says:
“He is all right and doesn't have health problem. The main thing is that he is not ill. I thought it was cold there, but he says the heating system works. There are four people there [in the punishment cell].”
Tatyana Frantskevich says her son was punished “for a violation”, but she doesn't know details.
It should be reminded that Alyaksandr Frantskevich was sentenced to three years in prison in May 2011. He was accused of “carrying out arson attacks on administrative buildings and hacking the website of the Navapolatsk city executive committee”. He serves his sentence in medium security penal colony “Volchy Nory” in Ivatsevichy. Human rights activists recognised Frantskevich political prisoner and demand to release him immediately.
