Maritza Peregrino, widow of slain Cuban prisoner of conscience, being harassed by Castro State Security to stay quiet

Maritza Peregrino, the widow of slain Cuban prisoner of conscience Wilmar Villar Mendoza, is currently being harassed by family members and neighbors sent by Castro State Security demanding she stay quiet regarding the details of her husband's ruthless murder.

Via Zoé Valdés (my translation):

Maritza Pelegrino, widow of Wilman Villar Mendoza, being harassed by family members and neighbors. By Martha Beatriz Roque.

It is necessary to plead for international support for the widow of Wilman. At this moment, she is being harassed by family members and neighbors sent by State Security to stop her from giving any more information to the press and to end her membership in the Ladies in White. She does not have the support of her family, only one neighbor who fears for her personal safety as well since everyone knows how repressive the government is and of what it is capable. Maritza, the widow of Wilman, does not even have any credit left on the neighbor's phone she has been using.

Please, if you can help from outside of Cuba, purchase some credit for her phone, call her at 5353842338 and offer her encouragement so she knows she is not alone. Thank you. Red Cubana de Comunicadores Comunitarios. Telephone, 5353842338.
