Political prisoner Parfiankou placed to locked cell for half a year


On 7 April Vasil Parfiankou has been placed in a locked-type confinement cell for 6 months, says an activist of the European Belarus civic campaign Julia Sciapanava.

“In a letter Vasil said that on 7 April he had been transferred to a locked-type confinement cell for half a year. Before that he got 10 penalties, and he had already spent 23 days in s penal cell. He was also deprived of the right for parcels and meetings for the whole time”, – she emphasized.

In a locked-type confinement cells they usually keep malicious violators of the prison regime.

We would remind that on 5 December 2013 Mink Piershamajski district court sentenced Parfiankou to 1 year in high security penal colony for “violating the regulations of preventive supervision”.

In 2011 Vasil Parfiankou was sentenced to 4 years in prison for participating in the manifestation on 19 December 2010. Several months later he was released by amnesty. In early 2012 after being detained at actions of solidarity with political prisoners preventive supervision was established after the opposition activist.
