Political prisoner Prakapenko to meet with family in prison


The visit will take place in July.

Charter97.org has learnt it from Anatoly Prakapenka, the father of the political prisoner.

“Artsiom waits for the meeting. We will visit our son in early July, but we don't know the exact date yet. It will be a long-term meeting. We'll also take a parcel for him,” he said.

The political prisoner's father said his son had no problems with health.

“It's clear that he feels better in summer than in winter. He calls every week. He says he doesn't have much work, so he does more physical exercises,” Anatoly Prakapenka added.

Artsiom Prakapenka was tried together with Yauhen Vaskovich and Pavel Syramolatau. He was sentenced to 7 years of imprisonment for an attempt to set the the doors of the KGB office in Babruisk on fire. Syramolatau applied to Lukashenka for a pardon and was released in September 2012. Prakapenka and Vaskovich refuse to applied for a pardon.
