Wardens don’t let Ales Bialatski’s letters come through

Not all the letters get delivered from Ales Bialatski, who is serving the imprisonment term in Babrujsk penal colony number 2.
The charter97.org web-site learnt about that from his wife Natalia Pinchuk.
“There is no special news. Sometimes he calls, sometimes he sends letters. But there is a feeling that not all the letters come through, because from time to time there is no coherence as we mail one to another, sometimes there are certain gaps. I, of course, ask him how he is doing, and he responds in a standard manner that everything is fine”, - she said.
Natalia Pinchuk pointed out that in the recent 2.5 years she had only one long-term meeting with husband.
“That is why I can only guess whether there will be the next one late in spring. It is generally quite hard to get any information from Ales, and I do not try to do that, because I understand that mailing as well as phone calls are all controlled. Whether you want it or not you have to take that into account”, - the political prisoner’s wife emphasized.
We would remind that on 24 November 2011 court found the head of the human rights center Viasna Ales Bialatski guilty of concealing revenues in an especially large amount and sentenced him to 4.5 year in high security prison and the confiscation of property. The reason for Bialatski’s criminal persecution was that he had banking accounts in Lithuania and Poland. The court did not take into account that the money was used for human rights activities.
