Eduard Lobau joined a vocational college in the colony number 22 in Ivacevichy, where he is serving his sentence.
His mother Maryna Lobava shared the information with charter97.org web-site.
-Eduard made a phone call and said that he had joined a vocational college. He now studies to be a welder, otherwise everything is the same. His health condition is fine. He has classes every day apart from weekends. He will study for 10 months, like at a regular vocational college. After that he will receive a diploma, but it will not said it is obtained in a colony. I think, this is good, because it will not be the time wasted, – the political prisoner’s mother noted.
