“Frequent searches have become a new good tradition, during which all things are turned inside out,” Mikalai Statkevich writes about news of prison life.
“There was no particular change, although some tension is felt. Frequent searches have become a new good tradition, during which all things are turned inside out. But in the Minsk prison “Americanka” this was done almost every other day, so I am not impressed. In general, during these three years I received such an experience that it is hard to surprise me with something. And it is even more difficult to make me ask for “pardon”. They won’t get it,” with these words the political prisoner has completed a letter to his family.
“The best news from the prison is usually no news in the letters, but this time there is nothing to boast about. Some small wicked things are constantly going on, this is how Maryna Adamovich, wife of Mikalai Statkevich, commented the latest news from prison. It seems that they are trying to break the concentration of Mikalai, not to let him sleep or find a reason for punishments also in this way. Well, he replied to them – they won’t get it”.
Maryna Adamovich also reported that, according to the information she has, the heating in the cell of Mikalai Statkevich has been turned off since Friday. The official version says it is because of some accident.
“But as far as I know, there is no heating only in a few cells, in 3-4 cells. Then, this is a very “local” accident, and they do not seem to be in a hurry to repair the heating. Though, the “victims” of the accident were given one more blanket. But they can use it only at night. And what about the daytime?” the woman asks.
