Obama’s Hope and Change is busy at work in Cuba. Amazing how much progress unilateral surrender and appeasement to a brutally repressive apartheid regime can make in such a short period of time. ¡Gracias, Obama!

Five freed in US-Cuba rapprochement back in custody: rights group

Five dissidents freed as Havana launched a high-profile diplomatic rapprochement with the United States are back in custody in Cuba, a human rights group said Monday.

The five were among 53 political prisoners released in 2014 and early 2015 as the Washington and Havana moved to restore ties after a half-century break.

The Cuban Commission on Human Rights, an officially outlawed but tolerated group, said the five “were confined in high-security prisons in the second half of 2015.”

They include Vladimir Morera, who had been hospitalized since launching a hunger strike on October 9. The United States last week called on the government to release him.

On Monday, Morera’s son, Vladier Morera, said his father started eating again on December 31.

The son said he did not know if this was voluntary on his father’s part. “All I know is that he is eating again, and that he is speaking incoherently because the doctors say he was very weak,” Morera said.

The others back in custody are Wilfredo Parada Milian, Jorge Ramirez Calderon, Carlos Manuel Figueroa and Aracelio Ribeaux Noa, according to the rights group.

All five were jailed “as a result of rigged trials and without due process,” it said.

Cuban authorities did not comment. But the Americas’ only communist government routinely denies it is holding political prisoners and says those jailed are in for common crimes.
