Marinich out of hospital, back in prison

From Charter 97:

Ex-minister of Foreign economic relations, former Ambassador of Belarus to Latvia Mikhail Marynich was transferred to the colony number 1 in Kalvaryjskaya Street in Minsk for serving the term, Interfax informed. The political prisoner was transferred to the colony from the republican prison hospital. In March Mikhail Marynich had a stroke in Vorsha medium security colony. “I am sure that the stroke cannot be cured in two months, and father should have rehabilitation in a specialized center. The fact that he is hurled into prison again, though he is still very weak and ailing, means that the authorities are continuing their criminal practice of doing away with its political opponents by any means. The growing pressure on Lukashenka’s opponents means that the regime in reality fears future changes in the country,” told the son of the imprisoned politician, leader of the civil initiative “Freedom to political prisoners!”, the leader of the civil initiative Pavel Marynich in his interview to the Charter’97 press center.
