Zmicer Dashkievich spent another birthday behind bars

Political prisoner, leader of the Young Front, on Saturday celebrated his 32 birthday.

This is another birthday that Zmicer Dashkievich spends in prison. Two years ago he celebrated birthday in a punishment cell in Gorki, last year  in Glubokoye prison, and this year in the Grodno penal colony.

Dashkevich, the leader of the youth opposition movement Young Front, was given a two-year prison sentence in March 2011 on charges of hooliganism after an alleged brawl on the eve of President Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s disputed reelection.

In August, a court found him guilty of repeatedly disobeying prison rules and sentenced him to an additional year in jail. Dashkevich’s current term ends in August 2013.
