Dashkevich in transit to Hrodna prison


Young Front leader Zmitser Dashkevich will be taken to a prison in Hrodna.

BelaPAN news agency received this information from Young Front deputy head and Dashkevich's fiancée Anastasia Palazhanka.

She says she was informed by the prison staff that Dashkevich would arrive at the prison in Hrodna on November 7 or 8.

It should be reminded that Zmitser Dashkevich was detained a day before the presidential elections. He has been serving his jail term on far-fetched accusations of “hooliganism” since December 18, 2010.

On August 28, 2012, political prisoner Zmitser Dashkeivch stood another trial for alleged failure to obey orders of prison staff. His jail term was extended by one year. On October 30, the court of Mozyr heard the case of the political prisoner and ordered to send him to a closed prison until the end of his term. Dashkevich was given the status of “persistent violator of prison rules”. Until now, there has been no information about his whereabouts.
