  • Ivan Murauyou to be transferred to Babrujsk correctional facility after appeal

    Relatives of convicted videographer Ivan Murauyou were informed about the designated facility in which he is going to serve his sentence.

    Jan­u­ary 11, Ivan Murauy­ou was trans­ferred from Min­sk pre-tri­al deten­tion cen­ter to a remand prison in Mahil­iou, where he is await­ing the con­sid­er­a­tion of his appeal. The convict’s trans­fer to Babru­jsk cor­rec­tion­al facil­i­ty depends on the time­ly appoint­ment of the date of the appeal hear­ing in the Supreme Court.

    In his let­ters, the polit­i­cal pris­on­er writes that he has par­tial­ly adapt­ed to the real­i­ties of the “relo­ca­tion base” over the past three weeks. Com­pared to the over­crowd­ed Min­sk deten­tion cen­ter, the con­di­tions in Mahil­iou are bet­ter – there is more space in the cells and exer­cise yards. He tries to use his time pro­duc­tive­ly: he reads a lot, edu­cates his fel­low inmates, and accu­mu­lates “inter­est­ing life expe­ri­ence.”

    On 26 Decem­ber 2022, Ivan was sen­tenced to 2.5 years of impris­on­ment in a closed tri­al. The case was relat­ed to the videographer’s video mate­r­i­al meant for a jour­nal­ist inves­ti­ga­tion of a cor­rup­tion case broad­cast on the Bel­sat TV chan­nel. Murauy­ou was there­fore con­vict­ed for par­tic­i­pat­ing in an extrem­ist for­ma­tion.
