Leading Cuban dissidents Dr. Darsi Ferrer and wife arrested
The whereabouts of Cuban husband-and-wife human rights activists Dr. Darsi Ferrer and Yusnaymi Jorge Soca were unknown Friday, a day after they were arrested at their home in Havana, according to a report from independent journalist Roberto de Jesús Guerra Pérez. The arrests came a day before Ferrer had planned to lead a demonstration along the seafront Malecon in the capital.
"A soldier dressed in olive green and two officers from the National Revolutionary Police came in a patrol car to their house and told Darsi they were there to search the house, which he resisted. Minutes later, they took him with my sister," said Ferrer's brother-in-law..
Message to the dictator: What happened to the new Cuba, the one promoted when you signed those UN Articles of Human Rights conventions? Liars! Is your grasp on power so weak that you cannot tolerate a stroll along the Malecón?
