  • asombra: It’s painful to see this kind of ambivalence, not to say equivocation, from a Cuban this late in the game. Not a good sign.

  • asombra: If the Netherlands was prepared to disgrace itself with a royal visit to Maduro, it was hardly likely to play hardball here.

  • asombra: Still, this venomous old fart could do a Chico Escuela and go “the revolution been berry, berry good to me.”

Castro regime threatens to return former prisoner of conscience to prison

Former prisoner of conscience and Cuban independent journalist Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia, currently being held by Cuban State Security, has received threats from the Castro dictatorship that his "conditional release" from prison may be revoked and he will be incarcerated once again.

Via the Miami Herald:

Cuban dissident’s wife says police may file charges against him

The wife of a dissident who was freed last year fears police will try to force him to serve the rest of his 25-year sentence.

Cuban police want to file fresh charges against leading dissident José Daniel Ferrer García, freed last year after eight years in prison, which could return him to prison to serve the rest of his 25-year sentence, his wife said Monday.

[...]

Ferrer’s wife, Belkis Cantillo, said police told her when she visited him in jail Monday that they wanted to charge him with public disorder for organizing street marches, and receiving outlawed financial aid from the United States.

Ferrer has been one of the most aggressive dissidents in eastern Cuban since his release from prison in March last year, organizing a long string of public protests that drew some of the harshest police crackdowns over the past year.
