Inmates in Cuban prison denounce forced slave labor

It is bad enough to be a regular citizen of Cuba, where everything is owned by the State, including the most fundamental human rights. But when you are an inmate in a Castro prison, the situation gets considerably worse.

Via Punt de Vista (my translation):

Inmates denounce 16-hour work days at Combinado del Este prison
The Cuban Network of Community Communicators reports that inmates at the Combinado del Este prison are denouncing slave-like conditions where they are forced to work dismantling cars for the regime. In their denouncement they describe workdays that last as long as 16 hours, they are fed substandard food, and no medical attention. The authorities at the prison, which the inmates describe as complicit and corrupt, have full knowledge of what is taking place and it "allows them to sell the individual parts of the vehicles they take apart." There are approximately 4,000 inmates at the Combinado del Este prison.
