The General’s Nephew

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

The General's Nephew

Cuban pro-democracy leader Antonio Rodiles remains imprisoned after being brutally beaten and arrested by the Castro regime last week. He is now being threatened with a one-year prison term. A young intellectual, Antonio is founder of the civil society project, Estado de Sats. According to Penultimos Dias, his 84-year old father, Manuel Rodiles Planas, has placed himself in front of the police station awaiting news of his son's well-being. Ironically, Antonio's uncle is General Samuel Rodiles Planas, a member of Castro's inner circle.

How could the General serve this dictatorship, as it subjects his nephew and brother to such violence and suffering?
