Vasily Parfiankou was transfered to correctional colony No. 9 in Horki on February 11.
He had been held in pretrial detention facility No. 7 in Zhodzina, Viasna human rights centre writes.
On December 5, Minsk's Pershamaiski distinct court sentenced Parfiankou to a year in a maximum security correctional colony for “violating the rules of the preventive supervision”. The activist was placed under supervision at the beginning of 2013. The political prisoner began to serve his term in colony No. 9 in Horki.
In 2011, Vasily Parfiankou was given 4 years in prison for participating in a rally on December 19, 2010. He was pardoned and released some months later. He was put under preventive supervision after he had been arrested at pickets of solidarity with political prisoners in early 2012.
