Judge at the regional court in Shklov. In January 2012 he decided to transfer former Presidential candidate and opposition activist N. Statkevich to a closed-type prison in Mogilov on the mere basis of alleged violations of the rules of imprisonment in Shklov penal colony IK-17. This decision has thus led to breaches of N. Statkevich's human rights including sleep deprivation and threatening his health.
