Former Group of 75 political prisoners present petition to Castro regime

Twelve former prisoners of conscience, members of the Group of 75 imprisoned during the “black spring” of 2003 and still in Cuba after their release, on Monday presented to the Castro regime a petition demanding an independent investigation of the death last month of dissident Juan Wilfredo Soto Garcia.

Officials at the Council of State in Havana refused to accept the Declaration of Roque, named after the town in Matanzas where they signed it this past weekend. But later they were able to submit to the Cuban justice ministry, according to a Radio Marti report.

The 12 former prisoners, all still in Cuban because of their refusal to accept forced exile as a condition of their release, are:

Pedro Argüelles Morán

Oscar Biscet González

Eduardo Díaz Fleitas

José Ferrer García

Diosdado González Marrero

Iván Hernández Carrillo

Librado Linares García

Héctor Maseda Gutiérrez

Angel Moya Acosta

Félix Navarro Rodríguez

Arnaldo Ramos Lauzerique

Guido Sigler Amaya
