Aliaksandar Frantskievich was placed in a solitary confinement cell

Tatiana Frantskievich received a letter from her son Aliaksandar Frantskievich who is serving his sentence in a penal colony in Ivanceviche. From the letter she has learned that in early June, her son spent dfive nights in a solitary confinement.

“I did not receive letters from him for some time. He wrote that he was put into solitary confinement. He got five days. He has not written what was the reason. It’s hard for me to imagine, however, what kind of offense he might have committed  if  he is imprisoned – in a cell? Maybe the authorities pick on him again. He wrote also that he feels fine after the time spent in solitary confinement”, – said Aliaksandar’s mother.

Activist of the anarchist movement, Aliaksandar Frantskievich was sentenced to three years in prison for attacks on official buildings. He is being held in Ivanceviche penal colony. He will be released in the fall.
