Autukhovich’s wife : the authorities force Mikalai to violate prison regulations


On 6 January 2014, political prisoner Mikalai Autukhovich was allowed a short meeting with his wife Alena Autukhovich. Following this meeting, she said that he was regularly provoked by the prison authorities, who intend to make him violate prison regulations.

Earlier, his mother Lidziya Autukhovich reported to Radio “Liberty” that she had sent a medical parcel to her son back in the middle of December. However, in his latest letter, Autukhovich wrote he hadn’t received the parcel. Did he receive it by the time of the meeting with his wife? Alena Autukhovich says her husband has received neither the parcel, nor envelopes and postcards. Consequently, the political prisoner couldn’t congratulate his friends on the New Year, for which he apologizes.

Lidziya Autukhovich, his mother, is very worried that her son has been left without medication.

“He needs these medicines, but they don’t give them to him. I am very worried about it! I tried to send the parcel as quickly as possible. The day when I received the letter that the parcel can be sent, I bought everything he needed and sent it shortly after. However, he still hasn’t received these medicines, though a new year has begun already!”

Vaukavysk entrepreneur Mikalai Autukhovich was sentenced to 5 years and 2 months of imprisonment for alleged possession of ammunition. Avtukhovich himself believes that he was punished for fighting local corruption. The political prisoner kept in Hrodna prison as a repeated violator of the prison regime.
