Dashkevich arrives at Hrodna prison


The Young Front leader has arrived at maximum security prison No. 1 in Hrodna.

Salidarnast received this information from Anastasia Palazhanka, the fiancée of the political prisoner.

“People in Hrodna check for information every day,” the Young Front deputy head said. “Ales Kirkevich, the head of the Hrodna branch of Young Front, visited the prison today and learned Zmitser had already arrived. They didn't give any comments. They only said they expected him to arrive on November 7.”

Anastasia Palazhanka and Zmitser Dashkevich's lawyer plan to visit the political prisoner on November 9.

“Businessman from Vaukavysk Mikalai Autukhovich is in the same prison. Journalist from Hrodna Andrzej Poczobut was there pending trial,” Palazhanka says. “There are no open spaces in the prison. It is the strictest prison. Judging by photos it looks like prisons in American blockbusters.”

Prison No. 1 in Hrodna is among three Belarus's penitentiaries for the most dangerous criminals and repeat offenders.
