The post card of Levaneuski to the chairman of Ministerial council of Belarus

Former political prisoner Valery Levaneuski has made demands to Ministerial council of Belarus about maintenance of chambers of pre-trial prison, prisons and inhabited sections of state corrections by regulations. Endurances from the reference it is resulted below.

As I was convinced on the experience -regulations of investigatory insulators, regulations correctional facilities is very “confidential” book and it carefully hide from accused, placed in pre-trial prison and condemned serving time in the form of deprivation and freedom restriction though for the educational purposes and prompting accused and condemned to lawness way of life, observance of their rights presence of regulations of investigatory insulators in each chamber, inhabited section and library of pre-trial prisons is necessary to provide,

The reason of such behaviour of administrations of pre-trial prisons and state corrections consists that if the accused and condemned will know the rights, administrations pre-trial prison and state corrections will break right accused (taken into custody) and condemned serving time in the form of deprivation more difficult or restriction of freedom, arrest to make tortures and mockeries.

My rights as accused, and subsequently the condemned were broken repeatedly and daily when I contained in ofpre-trial prisons, prisons of №1 of Grodno in May-October, 2004 and in a consequence when served time in colonies-19,-22, pre-trial prison-1 of Minsk, pre-trial prison-6 Baranovichi and others. And, infringement of the rights accused in pre-trial prisons and state corrections often borders on crimes.

The note: often administration of pre-trial prisons goes on such dodge – of the accused acquaint with separate positions of regulations (endurance) and forces it to undersign, that it has familiarised with it. It is More to read accused regulations do not give, that is law infringement. Or will hang out in the chamber small endurance from regulations which does not reflect all completeness of the rights accused and the mechanism of protection of these rights.

In my opinion, accused should have possibility at any moment to receive lowness help, including, and free, at any time to read in full volume of regulations, criminal code, the criminally-remedial code and other acts regulating a legal status of the accused. Administration of state corrections as creates artificial obstacles for using and acquisition of regulations under various schemes and condemned stay in legal vacuum, employment on these questions are not spent or spent formally «for a tick».

In connection with the above-stated and with a view of maintenance of the rights accused and the persons who are serving time on legal aid and receptions of the legal information, education in them aspirations to a lowness way of life I offer:

1. To oblige a management of Ministry of Internal Affairs RB to provide all chambers of pre-trial prisons by regulations and the law of Belarus «About an order and conditions of the maintenance of persons under guards» and to include them in chamber levy of execution.

2. To oblige a management of Ministry of Internal Affairs RB to provide all inhabited sections state corrections of the closed and open type, placement of chamber model and punishment cell by regulations and the criminally-executive code and to include them in levy of execution of inhabited sections and chambers.

3. To develop and accept corresponding statutory acts on performance of the above-stated offers.

The note: In case of need the help in maintenance of chambers of pre-trial prisons, prisons, placement of chamber model, and inhabited sections the given acts I ask to inform me with instructions of volumes of the necessary help and an order of its granting, with instructions what volumes are necessary to every pre-trial prisons and state corections (substantiation).

I and addressed earlier in SM of RB and Ministry of Internal Affairs RB with such offer, but the administration of colonies did not let out such letters from colonies, and me subjected to punishments and prosecutions to formal and far-fetched signs.
