Pastor and religious freedom activist in Cuba arrested by Castro State Security, computer and flash memory confiscated

Another story depicting the grim reality of life in Cuba under the violently repressive dictatorship of the criminal Castro regime.

Reverend Lleonart Barroso Temporarily Detained, Computer Confiscated in Cuba

Religious freedom activists Reverend Mario Felix Lleonart Barroso and his wife Yoaxis Marcheco Suarez were temporarily detained by Cuban police in the municipality of Camajuaní on 22 June and released two hours later without charge, but their laptop computers and a memory flash drive were confiscated.

According to British-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), the police told the couple that the computers and memory stick were needed for further investigation into possible criminal activities.

Mrs. Marcheco told CSW that the majority of the music used in their church during services is saved on one of the laptops. There are concerns that state security officials could plant information on the couple's computers in order to justify criminal charges.

"Reverend Lleonart has been arrested and interrogated in the past but has never been charged with any crime," said a spokesperson for CSW. "Earlier this year, despite pressure by state security agents to force him to do so, he refused to sign an 'Advertencia Oficial' or 'Official Warning,' which is often used in Cuba as evidence in future arrests. However, in that incident, the state security agents took DNA and scent samples from him."

Reverend Lleonart leads the Ebenezer Baptist Church in the village of Taguayabon in the Camajuani municipality, located in the central province of Villa Clara. He also helped to establish the Patmos Institute, an independent inter-denominational forum to promote Christian intellectual thought, based in Villa Clara.
