Lawyer meets with Haidukou in KGB jail


The visit took place on February 11 and lasted several hours.

According to Volha Haidukova, the mother of the political prisoner, it has been the first meeting since her son was transferred to the KGB jail in Minsk.

The woman says her son feels and looks fine. The lawyer is the only means of communication with the outer world for Andrei Haidukou. The investigation in his case was extended for a month, Radio Racyja reports.

Andrei Haidukou was detained in Vitebsk and  thrown into the KGB jail in Minsk. The 23-year-old worker of Naftan plant in Navapolatsk is accused of spying.

According to the official version, the guy was detained as he “was installing a dead drop with the information interesting for foreign secret services”. The accusation is considered ridiculous by many. European Belarus civil campaign released a statement saying the activist was detained for distributing Charter'97 newspaper. Human rights activists link the prosecution of Haidukou to his pro-opposition views and explain it by attempts of the authorities to scare young activists.
