Cuban dissident Ángel Moya Acosta arrested, charged with ‘illegal economic activity’

No, our new Bureau is not a joke. There are places on earth where one is not allowed to carry around “too much money,” And Castrogonia is one of these places.

The bottom line is this: Castro, Inc. has been itching to imprison Ángel Moya Acosta and his wife Berta Soler, and yesterday they found what they consider a good excuse for nabbing him. Apparently, someone in Havana had passed on an undisclosed amount of cash to him, most probably a donation from abroad sent as a remittance, something that is common among leading dissidents, who are not allowed to receive money directly from abroad.

His wife Berta Soler referred to this money as “ayuda familiar”, or family assistance. One can only imagine how much they need such gifts from abroad. Aaaah, but Castro, Inc. is not going to put up with this. No remittances for you!

Moya was already under investigation and likely to be sentenced to house arrest for “disrespecting and attacking a police officer.” Beautiful place, Castrogonia. Absolutely beautiful. Remember, Cuban black lives don’t matter at all, and they now constitute nearly 80% of the island’s population.

Loosely translated from Marti Noticias

Dissident and former political prisoner Ángel Moya Acosta, was arrested on Tuesday and will be prosecuted for illegal economic activity, according to the authorities.

Berta Soler, leader of the Ladies in White movement and wife of Moya Acosta, reported this to Radio Martí.

“Moya left around 12 noon from here, from the national headquarters, and around 9 at night he had not arrived. I was already denouncing that I had no communication with Moya. After 10 p.m., they let him make a call from the Aguilera police unit, which is near here, and he tells me that around 3 p.m., near here, when he was back, he was detained by the State Security Department and the National Police,” Soler said.

According to the opposition leader, her husband was seized with “money he had with him, and they have told her that they are going to apply the Law for ‘illicit economic activity’. I do not know what the illicit economic activity in which they have caught him is because, that you have money in your wallet, in your backpack, or wherever you want, it is your money, “questioned the Lady in White.

Soler said that she immediately went to the police station to bring her husband toiletries and medicine, “but I couldn’t see him; I picked up her wallet with her cell phone in the backpack she had. I asked them the amount of money that (he) had and if they did not give me the paper (proof of confiscation) and they told me no, that it was with the lawyer.

The opponent is also under investigation and with a precautionary measure of house arrest, for an “alleged contempt against a policeman” who denounced that he had been attacked by Moya, and that he “had disrespected him.”
