Hunger striker Rubtsou charged for jail meals

Activist from Homel Yury Rubtsou, who was on hunger strike in a detention centre in Minsk, has has been charged for jail meals.

Activist Yury Rubtsou, who was on hunger strike during a 25-day of detention, has been charged 1,650,000 rubles for meals, Viasna human rights centre writes. Rubtsou filed a complaint to Minsk's Maskouski district court.

I declare that on my first day in jail, I sent an application to the jail chief announcing that I went on hunger strike. I did not take any food until the end of the jail term, so I regard the charge for meals as mockery by police officers, the Homel resident said.

Rubtsou also wants the police to return him a T-shirt with the text Lukashenka go away and Arrest me. I'm against Lukashenka.

I was detained in Minsk's Savetski district on April 26. Police officers forcefully undressed me and took off my T-shirt off with phrases of a political character. It was confiscated without any documents necessary for the procedure, he said.

Yury Rubtsou was detained on April 26 during Chernobyl Way rally. He was taken to a court without his T-shirt on April 28. He was sentenced to 25 days in custody.
