Czech student transfers money for Belarusian political prisoners

A student of a Prague gymnasium transferred money to a charity account to support victims of political repression in Belarus.
Tereza Reichelováwon the Václav Havel Library competition for the best student essay on the topic “How do you imagine the Czech president?” Tereza transfered 15,000 Czech korunas ($780) to the charity account to support victims of political repression in Belarus, the website Civic Belarus reports.
“The decision to give my prize in the literary competition to the Belarusian dissident movement was inspired by the human rights centre which was chosen as a coincidence: shortly before Lukashenko’s regime had confiscated their office. I did not count on this money and so it eventually seemed to be a logical step,” Tereza Reichelová said.
We remind that 10 political prisoners serve terms in Belarusian correctional facilities.
