Rep. Diaz-Balart condemns arrest of Antúnez and wife; calls for tightening sanctions against Cuba’s apartheid regime

From the offices of U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL):

Diaz-Balart Condemns Arrest of Activists Antunez and Yris Perez; Calls for Tightening of Sanctions

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement after the most recent arrest of pro-democracy activist Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez” and his wife Yris Perez.

"The Castro regime has once again brutally arrested pro-democracy activist, Jorge Luis Garcia Perez ‘Antunez,’ and his wife and fellow activist, Yris Perez.

“Repression in Cuba has increased exponentially despite repeated attempts from the Obama Administration to appease the regime with relaxed sanctions and travel visas to Castro operatives. With the arrests of these and other courageous pro-democracy activists, and the unjustifiable imprisonment of U.S. aid worker Alan Gross, we must tighten sanctions against the Castro dictatorship by eliminating so-called ‘people-to-people’ travel, strictly enforcing current sanctions with maximum penalties, and prohibiting visas to those who help the regime inflict human rights abuses.

“I am calling on other pro-democracy advocates, human rights organizations, and our friends in the international community to condemn these arrests and call for immediate consequences to the brutal Castro regime. We cannot remain silent in the face of such egregious human rights abuses.”

Antunez and Yris
