Female Cuban dissident sexually assauted by Castro State Security

Punt de Vista has published a report coming from Cuba detailing the sexual assault of female Cuban dissident, Damarys Moya Portieles. On January 25, 2013, the victim was participating in a peaceful demonstration in Villa Clara, Cuba, protesting the continued imprisonment of Cuban opposition leaders Sonia Garro, Ramón Muñoz, and Calixto Ramón Martínez Arias when she and others were arrested by Castro State Security.

At the time of her arrest, officers confiscated Portieles cell phone. However, upon arriving at the police station, she was interrogated by two female State Security officers, one of them in plain clothes and apparently the superior, who demanded she turn over her cellular phone although they were clearly aware the device had already been confiscated. Nevertheless, the demand was only a pretense for the humiliation these two Castro officials had planned for this innocent dissident.

When Portieles failed to produce a cellular phone, one of the officers grabbed her by the hair and the other by the legs, pulling her to the ground and immobilizing her. The superior officer then ordered the other one to pull down Portieles pants and underwear and insert a pen into the victim's vagina in search of a cell phone. The officers knew Portieles' phone had already been confiscated, so a search for the device was obviously not the motivation behind their sinister and vile act. The true purpose behind the sexual assault on Portieles was to subject the defenseless woman to supreme humiliation.

This is how the Castro dictatorship operates. This is the reality of life in Cuba under the tyranny of the Castro brothers and their so-called reforms.
