Via the Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet blog on July 14, 2010:
My husband Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet is a prisoner of conscience for the cause of the 75 who were imprisoned during the spring of 2003 in Cuba. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison, and he is on the list of prisoners to be released by the agreement reached between the Cuban government and the Cuban Catholic Church. Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet has publicly expressed his decision to not emigrate outside of Cuba. The Cardinal from Havana, Jaime Ortega, has said to International Public Opinion that emigration is an option and not a requirement for the release of the prisoners. On July 2, I personally spoke to Ortega and I communicated to him my husband’s decision not to emigrate. As of today, neither the Cuban government, nor the Church has communicated to either my husband or me any other information in relation to his liberty.
