Ms. Kavalienka: Probably, my husband has gone on hunger strike again

Aliena Kavalienka, the Belarusian political prisoner Siarhiej Kavalienka's wife, says there is a possibility Mr. Kavalienka continued his hunger strike in the remand prison in Viciebsk.

Ms. Kavalienka was not allowed to visit her husband on May 10. She says that this could have been done to conceal Mr. Kavalienka's hunger strike.

As it became known, Mr. Kavalienka's appeal consideration was postponed until May 18.
