Castro dictatorship frees four imprisoned Cuban human rights activists

In an obvious attempt to deflect mounting international condemnation, the Castro dictatorship released four imprisoned human rights activist the day after it murdered prisoner of conscience Wilmar Villar Mendoza.

Three of those activists released on Friday were Lady in White Ivonne Malleza, her husband Ignacio Martinez, and Isabel Alvarez, all of which had been jailed since November 30th, 2011 when they were arrested during a peaceful protest against the Cuban dictatorship.

The fourth activist released on Friday was Guillermo Fariñas, who was arrested last Saturday for participating in activities protesting the Castro regime’s continued repression of the Cuban people.
