Castro regime expels and banishes from Cuba dissident who ran through Havana May Day parade with U.S. flag

Daniel Llorente Miranda, the Cuban dissident who in 2017 was beaten and arrested by State Security when he ran through a May Day parade in Havana with an American flag, has been expelled and banished from Cuba by the Castro dictatorship.

Martí Noticias has the report (my translation):

Cuban dissident Daniel Llorente Miranda told Radio Martí on Friday that State Security agents forced him to leave Cuba.

In his conversation with the radio station, he said he was taken from his home in the early morning hours and taken by car to the Jose Martí International Airport in Havana. He was initially taken to Terminal 2, where flights to the U.S. depart, but then he was taken to the Aruba Airlines counter to coordinate his flight to Guyana.

Before putting him on the plane, Llorente said the guards warned him he must never return to Cuba because “we will make you disappear.”


The dissident told Radio Martí that in the preceeding days, between April 12 and May 2, he along with his son Eliecer were taken out of Havana by State Security and forced to tour “historical centers of the revolution.” They also threatened him he would be expelled to Guyana if he continued with his acts of defiance against the system.
