Justice 11J documents 42 members of civil society in political prison for common causes

The independent organization Justicia 11J assured that in Cuba there are at least 42 activists, opponents, independent journalists or members of religious groups of civil society detained in prison for political reasons disguised as common crimes.

The revelation comes to light after the Attorney General’s Office published the sentence of five and nine years against independent artists Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara and Maykel “Osorbo” Castillo Pérez.

“There are now 589 people sentenced in the ordinary trial in relation to 11J, plus 47 in summary,” Justice 11J stressed.

The group recalled that in relation to the protest that took place in April of last year outside the headquarters of the San Isidro Movement, in Havana, other Cubans were also sanctioned, such as Félix Roque (five years in prison) and Juslid Justiz and Reina Sierra (three years of correctional work without internment).

“To date, we have documented the arrest of 1,481 people in the context of the July protest. Of these, 725 remain in Cuban prisons,” its members stressed.

In January of this year, Cuba ranked fifth on the list of countries with the highest prison population rate in the world, with 510 per 100,000 inhabitants, according to the Institute for Crime & Justice Policy Research (ICPR).

Justicia 11J is an independent working group that addresses the issue of arrests for political reasons in Cuba. His work focuses on the protesters last summer on the island who were arrested and tried as common criminals, when in reality they are political prisoners.
