biscet

Dr. Oscar Biscet, physician, winner of numerous human rights awards, including the 2008 Presidential Medal of Freedom, was arrested and brutally beaten earlier today.

Just in on Twitter, from Dr. Biscet's wife Elsa Morejon:


Translation: OscarBiscet was brutally beaten by the political police when they arrested him, I do not know where he is.

Update, good news:

@ElsaMorejon Thanks to God and supportive friends, my husband @OscarBiscet just called from the Infanta Street, says he is on his way home.
