Cuban dictatorship attempts to silence whistle-blowers

Salvador Ferrer Rodriguez

The Cuban dictatorship officially attributes the death of prison inmate Salvador Ferrer Rodriguez to tuberculosis, but the accounts provided by two other inmates tell a different story of a vicious beating by Castro prison guards. Now, the Cuban dictatorship is attempting to silence those inmates in what appears to be a move to cover up the murder of Salvador Ferrer Rodriguez.

There is little doubt that the Castro regime, whose brutality and violence has murdered thousands of Cubans, is capable of beating someone to death. While they may attempt to convince the world Ferrer Rodriguez died of TB, their own history contradicts the official account, and their attempts to silence the inmates who blew the whistle on their brutality only proves the regime has something sinister to hide.

Via Uncommon Sense:

Castro regime moves against Cuba prisoners who revealed death of Salvardor Ferrer

So what killed Cuban prison inmate Salvador Ferrer Rodriguez?

Was it TB or was it a beat down by his jailers?

One indicator may be the reprisals being carried out by the Castro regime against those other prisoners who dared to inform the world of what they saw and heard, as reported by the CIHPRESS news agency.

The coverup includes threatening prisoner Norberto Muños Palomino with removal from the mininum security area of his prison; and throwing prisoner Alexander Suárez Torres into a punishment cell. Suárez started a hunger strike after guards informed him that any privileges he had been enjoying had been revoked.

I guess we now know the truth about what happened to Salvador Ferrer Rodriguez.
