Imprisoned Cuban dissidents pressured to testify against José Daniel Ferrer

From our Annals of Socialist Castronoid Justice

Yesterday, El Niuyortain let the world know that the Castro regime uses its justice system as its main agent of repression.

Never mind the fact that every Cuban has known this for 61 years and El Niuyortain could have easily disclosed this piece of news long ago.

Well, Mildred, today yet another story has surfaced that details how Castronoid courts function as a means of repression in league with State Security. Hundreds of thousands of stories such as this one have been available for El Niuyortain since 1959.

Today’s news story features coercive methods of eliciting false testimony and of forcing dissidents to turn against one another.

It;s a justice system straight from Hell. Brilliant maneuvers, for sure, devised by the devil himself…

…and ignored by El Niuyortain for 61 years.

Castronoid justice system

Loosely translated from Marti Noticias

Cuban dissidents and their relatives have denounced pressures being put on them by State Security to force members of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU) to testify against their leader José Daniel Ferrer, who has been jailed for the past 105 days.

Recently, no one has had any news about Ferrer, but activists and his relatives expect him to be granted a family visit on January 16.

However, the possibility of such a visit taking place depends entirely on the authorities of the Aguadores Penitentiary, in Santiago de Cuba, who could easily cancel it, said dissident Carlos Amel Oliva, youth leader of the group, to Radio Televisión Martí.

José Pupo Chaveco, Fernando González Vaillán, Roilán Zárraga Ferrer and José Daniel Ferrer García were arrested on October 1, 2019 and charged with the crimes of serious injuries and deprivation of liberty, for an alleged assault on an individual whose wife has denied the complaint . The four remain behind bars awaiting trial.

Amel Oliva said Monday that the homes of UNPACU activists remain under constant police surveillance and that two of the UNPACU dissidents detained with Ferrer are being pressured in prison to testify against their leader.

Oliva added: “In the case of Roilán, he told his sister that State Secirotu agemts were proposing a good job for him and told him that he was the one who has delayed his trial and that of the other four UNPACU members because they’re waiting for him to be a star witness who will incriminate José Daniel. Thus far, Roilán has refused to cave in under this pressure, but State Security agents keep threatening him, telling him that if he does not testify against Ferrer, they’re willing to wait for him to break, and that the trial can be delayed for another 5 to 7 years.”

  1. There’s no such thing as finally getting it on Cuba, certainly not for an entity like the NYT. There’s only finally giving some indication of seeing the obvious, and I’m afraid there’s precious little merit in that, if any, especially for an entity with the pretensions of the NYT.
