#FreeGorki: Trial of Cuban Punk Rocker Gorki Aguila suspended

Joan Antoni Guerrero Vall in Punto Cuba (translation by Translating Cuba):

Gorki Aguila’s Trial Suspended

gorkiindexMusician Gorki Águila announced today this his trial scheduled for this Tuesday was suspented “due to reasons of health” of his attorney.

The leader of the band Porno para Ricardo said that “at no time” did her receive “official notification.” Because of this, he said, he went to the “summary court of Marianao, at 100th and 33rd, to register my annoyance at this news,” and so that “they would have no possible argument to accuse me of not appearing.”

Also, the musician asked the people who are now raising a campaign for him on the social networks “not to abandon the denunciation” given that the authorities assert that “they will take full advantage of this pause to attack after impunity.”

Águila is the Cuban musician most critical of the regime living in Cuba with a major international presence.
