This is the kinder, gentler Castro dictatorship the “Cuba Experts” and Castro sycophants here in the U.S. keep telling us about.
Amnesty “Prisoner of Conscience” Brutally Beaten
Cuban political prisoner Ivan Fernandez Depestre has been brutally beaten and placed in a small, inhumane punishment cell (known as a “tapeada“) in the Guamajal Prison of Santa Clara.
Fernandez Depestre, held without charges or trial since July 30th of last year, has been designated by Amnesty International as a “prisoner of conscience.”
He had simply protested against the brutal beating of two fellow inmates by the prison authorities.
More “reform” you can’t believe in.
