Some 122 arbitrary detentions, many of them temporary, were recorded in Cuba during the month of June, according to the monthly report of June issued by the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation (CCDHRN). These arrests were for political reasons, the report said.

Many of the detainees are “peaceful dissidents” and, as the document specifies, “they were interned under degrading conditions in the police services barracks.”

In the case of political prisoners, the CCDHRN ensures that 122 people were detained. And they highlight the cases of Dr. Eduardo Cardet Concepción, leader of the Christian Liberation Movement, and also Dr. Ariel Ruiz Urquiola, who is on hunger strike.

During the month of June 31 acts of police harassment carried out by the State Security are reported.  Of these attacks two were physical assaults and three were acts of vandalism against peaceful dissidents and their innocent relatives.
