Former political prisoner Zmitser Paliyenka, is currently kept in a remand prison on suspicion of committing a crime under Part 3 of Article 393 of the Criminal Code “Particularly malicious hooliganism,” has been on hunger strike since March 24.

This is reported on Facebook by his friend, activist Vyachaslau Kasinerau.

The activist reports that Paliyenka voiced to the administration of the detention center his demands: regular medical care, freedom of correspondence and a pen.

Zmitser is known to have acute dermatitis. A doctor has visited the prisoner only once to provide him medical assistance. But this is not enough.

Paliyenka has also demanded that the administration of the colony give him a pen, because he does not have the opportunity to write letters to friends, as well as complaints.

Vyachaslau Kasinerau reports that Paliyenka also has problems with conducting correspondence.

“From the moment of his arrest, many people have written to Zmitser, but only one letter has reached him so far. He demands freedom of correspondence with everyone who writes to him and to whom Paliyenka is going to write,” the activist said.

Zmitser Paliyenka was brutally detained in his apartment on the morning of March 20 on suspicion of committing a crime under Part 3 of Article 339 of the Criminal Code “Particularly malicious hooliganism”, namely that he sprayed pepper spray in the face of a man. He has been in the remand prison for eighth days. It is known that Paliyenka was detained for 10 days.
