A Cuban inmate identified as Luis Alfonso Montero, who suffers from mental problems and epilepsy, denounced through an audio broadcast by the Cuban Observatory for Human Rights (OCDH) that the prison authorities of the El Guayabo prison, located on the Isla de la Juventud They violently assaulted him.

Montero assured the OCDH that, in the aforementioned prison, they not only physically and verbally assault him, but also deny him the medical attention he needs for his condition.

“I can’t find drugs, I don’t want to say I’m crazy, but I have a personality disorder, and on top of that I’m epileptic,” said Monteros, after charging that three months ago a prison nurse refused to inject him with the diazepam that he had been given. It had been ordered by the doctor.

The Cuban inmate complained that he is without a wheelchair and without any instrument to help him move around the prison, even though his ankles are injured, and he also indicated that, by demanding better treatment, he has only earned himself problems.

In an audio recording, Montero recounted that, on December 30, 2022, he was violently beaten by the prison authorities, who injured his ribs, eyebrows and his entire mouth, in addition to leaving him handcuffed for twenty-four hours without food and drink.
