An action of solidarity with the Belarusian political prisoner was held in Minsk metro.
The Young Christian Democrats have held a rally in Minsk metro, and once again they reminded with the help of leaflets to Minsk dwellers and the authorities about the situation with Belarusian political prisoners, and first of all with the member of the Belarusian Christian Democracy Yauhen Vaskovich, the press-service of the Belarusian Christian Democracy informs.
We remind that as the organisning committee for creation of the BCD party has learnt from the sources in Mahilyou prison #4, the administration of the prison started to exert all kinds of pressure on Yauhen Vaskovich though other prisoners.
If Vaskovich was tortured earlier, endlessly placed to the punishment isolation cell, was given not enough food, his meetings with relatives and parcels were cut, now prisoners have chosen a different tactic – they use other prisoners.
Yauhen Vaskovich, Artsiom Prakapenka and Pavel Syramolatau were tried together. Vaskovich was sentenced to 7 years in prison for an attempt to set on fire the doors of the KGB office in Babruisk. He was thrown into a punishment cell many times. Later the prisoner was transferred from the colony to Mahilyou prison as “a malicious violator of the regulations”.
