Commission for pardons responds to hunger-striker Sviatlana Chornaya

She is protesting against the death sentence pronounced to Dzmitry Kanavalau and Uladzislau Kavaliou, keeping her hunger-strike since 30 November.

The woman has received a response of the President’s Commission of Pardons. According to it, her appeal will be considered according to the Belarusian legislation. Chornaya has claimed to BelaPAN that she thinks that it is just a formal reply.

The Minsker wants to send another appeal to the President’s Administration so that her demands would be considered per se. According to Chornaya, she is still on hunger-strike and only drinks water from time to time.
