At a press-conference in Minsk Dzmitry Dashkievich claimed that the pressure on a former presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov was unprecedented at penitentiary facilities.

Former political prisoners Sannikov and Dashkievich were kept in the same cell for some time at a transfer point in Viciebsk, BelaPAN reports. "They took Sannikov in hand like they did no one else, apart from , probably, the kidnapped Zakharanka, Krasouski and Hanchar", - Dashkievich emphasized today, after having been released from the prison number 1 in Hrodna. He did not share the details of the European Belarus civic campaign leader Andrei Sannikov’s time in prison.

"I saw a lot. But I do not think that I have the right to speak about that now", - Dashkievich explained. According to him, it is not important whether a plea for pardon was signed or not, but how the person acts now.
