Political Prisoner Maryja Kalesnikava Hospitalised To ICU

Earlier it was reported that she had been transferred to a punishment cell.

Maryja Kalesnikava has been hospitalized to the intensive care unit of a Homel hospital. This was reported on November 29 by the telegram channel of Viktar Babaryka's headquarters, citing the lawyer of political prisoner. The colony administration said nothing about Maryja's hospitalization.

The reason for the hospitalization is unknown. According to the headquarters, an ambulance team took Maryja to the hospital on November 28. She was admitted to the first surgical ward and transferred to the intensive care unit.

"Maryja's lawyer was not allowed to see her in the colony for the third time in a row on November 29. Why? It was explained by the absence of a statement from her," the headquarters reported.

Earlier it was reported that Maryja had been placed in a punishment cell. However, there was no information about the date of her detention.

Kalesnikava's defence lawyer Uladzimir Pylchanka pointed out his concerns about Maryja's state of health in his complaints against the denial of access to the prosecutor's office. There has been no response to the complaints yet.

We remind you that the court sentenced Maryja Kalesnikava to 11 years of a general regime colony. She was transferred from the pre-trial detention facility to the penal colony No. 4 in Homel. She was found guilty under three articles of the Criminal Code:

Art. 357 part 1 (Conspiracy or other actions aimed at unconstitutional seizure or retention of power),

Art. 361 part 3 (public calls for seizure of state power, or violent change of the constitutional system of the Republic of Belarus, or treason, or committing an act of terrorism or sabotage, or other actions aimed at harming the national security of the Republic of Belarus, or distribution of materials containing such appeals, committed through the media or the Internet);

Art. 361-1(1) (Establishment of an extremist formation or leadership of such formation or its structural subdivision).
