Priest Dzmitry, who serves in the Slutsk district, plans to visit a political prisoner and hear his confession.
The news was passed by Eduard Lobau’s mother. The priest plans to visit the correctional colony on 14 October, Radio Svaboda reports.
-Priest Dzmitry has visited my son before. They know each other well and trust each other – Maryna Lobau says. According to her, the confession takes place in the presence of a prison officer. Maryna Lobau says what priest Dzmitry usually tells her after such meetings.
-He tells me about my son’s physical state and how are things at him. He cannot ask many questions about prison life, because Eduard is not allowed to speak about most of the things. They mostly talk about his state of mind, plans and daily routine – said Mrs. Lobau.
The Young Front activists, Eduard Lobau and Zmitser Dashkevich were tried for a fight with a stranger a day before the 2010 presidential election. Lobau was sentenced to 4 years in a correctional colony on Ivatsevichy. Human rights activists considered Eduard Lobau a political prisoner.
