Cuban opposition leader Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet released by Castro State Security after arrest

Socialist Cuba’s notorious State Security has released Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet after his arrest on Thursday and detention for several hours.

Martí Noticias has the report (my translation):

Dr. Oscar Elías Biscet is released, receives a fine

Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet was released after several hours in custody at the San Miguel del Padron police station in Havana. A fine for 500 Cuban pesos was imposed upon him, said his wife Elsa Morejon to Radio Television Martí

“According to State Security, the fine is for ‘receiving stolen property,’ despite the fact that what they took from the house were personal items such as a computer, a cell phone, and literature,” said Morejon.

According to the activist, what took place on Thursday is another pretext by authorities to “continue intimidating the opposition and the voices advocating for liberty and democracy in Cuba.”

She said Biscet was arrested without having taken his medication for hypertension and returned home “with a migraine” and the authorities will be responsible for “whatever happens to my husband.”

Morejon said the police returned her cell phone, which they had confiscated during the raid of their home to, as she explained, prevent her from publishing photos of what was happening.

She confirmed the police had erased the videos and tweets she published denouncing the incident.
