Political Prisoner Nasta Loika Has Been Transferred to Gomel Women's Colony

It became known that Nasta had been relocated to the correctional facility. For sending letters to her, use the following address:

Penal Colony No. 4

Gomel, 246035

Anastasia Yuryevna Loyko (mark "quarantine" on the envelopes).

Earlier the human rights defender was added to the "terrorist list". The State Security Committee updated the list of "individuals engaged in terrorist activities", resulting in the inclusion of seven more names.

On June 20, Minsk City Court sentenced the political prisoner to 7 years in prison for drafting the report "Persecution of anarchists, anti-fascists, leftists and social activists in Belarus" (2017 — August 2018). It allegedly contained a critical assessment of the activities of police officers.

The trial was closed to the public, so the details and Nasta’s position during the trial are unknown.

On October 3, the Supreme Court considered an appeal against the verdict. The judicial board, chaired by Judge Petr Listratsenko, upheld the verdict and rejected the appeal.
