Jailed politician Andrei Klimov doesn't get money transfers from his family

Money transfers do not reach political prisoner Andrei Klimov, who is serving his prison term in a Mazyr colony, politician's mother Ala Klimova said. She wired the money twice in October, but Andrei wrote in his letters in early November that he had not received any money, reports Belapan.

Andrei Klimov is suffering from heart problems and diabetis. His mother quotes his letterss as writing that the political prisoner cannot buy anything in the prison kiosk because he does not receive money. He cannot eat prison food for health reasons.

Klimov was in August 2007 sentenced to two years in a high-security prison for writing an article in the internet. The court said his publication allegedly called to overthrow the government.
