Opposition leaders in Cuba re-arrested, face prosecution

John Suarez in Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter:

Two civic opposition leaders re-arrested face prosecution
" I know that what the tyranny is worried about is that I won't go away, and will continue talking. Today I alert the world that my life is more in danger than ever." -  Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antúnez" June 13, 2014

When I ask him again, he answered me and repeated that they would be prosecuted and did not know how long they would be there, because he did not know, he had nothing to do with it, he had to wait for orders from the high command, "said Paceiro Pérez.

They were released on the morning of Friday, June 13, 2014 and Antúnez made a statement where he denounced being beaten up, choked into unconsciousness on two occasions and "revived" with injections of an unknown substance.
