, Index number: EUR 49/002/2005

Imprisoned opposition politician Mikhail Marinich, aged 65, reportedly suffered a stroke on 7 March 2005. His lawyer and family were not informed, and only found out on 10 March, when a fellow-inmate who had just been released contacted a newspaper, which then called the family. They have expressed concern that Mikhail Marinich is not receiving appropriate medical treatment, and fear that his life is in danger.
