-BCD activists, who wrote letters to all political prisoners, haven’t received letters and replies to their letters from Mikalai Autukhovich. It is unusual for him. We think it is a sign that Mikalai Autukhovich is held incommunicado and cannot receive letters –Dzianis Sadouski said.

He says it was probably caused by a recent incident with Mikalai Autukhovich, who cut his abdomen protesting against a disciplinary sanction and inactivity of the prosecutor’s office, where he filed a complaint to.
