Cuba: Independent journalist remains imprisoned week after promised release

Via Uncommon Sense:

A week after his promised release, Cuban political prisoner Calixto Martinez still in jail

A week after Cuban prisoner of conscience Calixto Ramon Martinezended his hunger strike when his jailers promised his release was imminent, he remains in jail.

Not a surprise in the least -- a promise from the Castro regime is worth nothing, until we know whether they have kept it. But it remains important to keep paying attention to Martinez's plight, to hold his jaiers accountable.

Friday evening, Cuban independent journalist Roberto de Jesus Guerra reported via Twitter that Martinez had been transferred from the Combinando del Este prison in Havana to the Valle Grande prison, also near the capital.

Does this mean Martinez, who has been unjustly jailed since Sept. 16, is about to be released?

Only actions, not promises, will tell.

The International Press Institute this week renewed its call for the Castro regime to release Martinez.
