During an illegal detention of former political prisoner Jose Angel Luque Alvarez, an official from the Castro regime threatened to kill the peaceful activist just like they killed Laura Pollan.

Via Payo Libre (my translation):

Former prisoner threatened to be killed the same way they killed Laura

Havana, Cuba – www.PayoLibre.com – Former political prisoner Jose Angel Luque Alvarez, who was being held at the Santiago de las Vegas police station in the Boyeros municipality, was the last to be released from the activists detained this past October 20, 2011.

Luque Alvarez stated that he was a victim of insults and vulgar acts by agents of the police who doused him with pepper spray and subjected him to a violent beating for wearing a t-shirt that said "CAMBIO" (Change).

He also stated that an official by the name of Fernando Tamayo Gomez from Dept. 21 of State Security threatened him with the following: "We killed Laura, we can do the same thing to you and nothing will happen."

Jose Angel Luque Alvarez was released yesterday, October 21st at 8 pm.
