Political prisoner Lobau deprived of visits

Eduard Lubau said to his mother that he might be punished with cancelling a short-term visit scheduled for February.

He said it during a phone conversation, Radio Svaboda reports.

“We had a very short conversation. I planned to call the penal colony next week to arrange a visit. Eduard said he might be deprived of a visit, because he had a violation. They are considering now how to punish him. He didn't tell what violation he had committed,” Maryna Lobava said.

It's unknown when Eduard Lobau committed the alleged violation. It may have happened any day since December 31, when he called home.

“It may be anything: being in a wrong place, unbuttoned clothes, improperly greeting. They can always find faults,” she said.
