500 Days Without Information About Mikalai Statkevich
COLLAGE: CHARTER97.ORG

What is happening with the leader of the Belarusian opposition?

Today, there has been no news about the leader of the Belarusian opposition, political prisoner Mikalai Statkevich, for exactly 500 days.

This was reported by the politician's wife, Maryna Adamovich:

“Today is exactly 500 days of complete uncertainty. 1,484 days behind bars. This is an abyss. How much blackness and evil, how much low energy is invested in this.

But the light will definitely dispel the darkness. Today this is especially obvious.

Happy Descent of the Holy Spirit! Happy Trinity!”

Mikalai Statkevich was sentenced to 14 years in prison, he was accused of “organizing mass riots” (Article 293 of the Criminal Code of Belarus).

Since the beginning of July 2022, when Mikalai Statkevich began serving his sentence in the Hlybokaye colony, he has had 23 penalties. At least 9 times he was sent to solitary confinement for periods ranging from 7 to 10 days. The political prisoner celebrated the New Year in solitary confinement.

Mikalai Statkevich is being held in the colony under the harshest conditions: the politician is kept in solitary confinement in conditions dangerous to his health. It has become known that Mikalai Statkevich has had COVID-19 twice in prison.

Natallia Radzina, the Editor-in-Chief of the Charter97.org website, demanded that the Belarusian authorities refute information received from several sources about the possible death of Mikalai Statkevich in prison.

“Show Mikalai Statkevich, if he is alive, to his closest and dearest person, Maryna Adamovich. Allow them a visit or at least a video call!

Otherwise, your silence will mean that the sources are right, and Lukashenka and his punishers are responsible for the death of yet another political prisoner,” said Natalia Radzina.

You can support the political prisoner by sending him a letter at the following address: penal colony #13, Savetskaya str., 205, Hlybokaye, 211791 Belarus, for Mikalai Viktaravich Statkevich.
