Political prisoner Pedro Albert Sánchez was transferred to the National Hospital

Cuban professor and political prisoner Pedro Albert Sánchez, currently on a hunger strike, was transferred to the Penitentiary Ward of the “Enrique Cabrera Cossío” General Teaching Hospital (National Hospital), according to his family in the Valle Grande prison.

The prison authorities asked the family of Albert Sánchez to go to the hospital “to try to help him get out of that situation,” Pedro Antonio Albert, the youngest son of the political prisoner, told CubaNet. “It’s what they always try to do: bring in the family so that he leaves the strike,” he said.

“My brother told the doctor that he had nothing to talk about with them or with my father, that my father’s position was quite clear and that they knew what they had to do if they wanted him to stop the strike,” he also specified. young man.

Albert assured that neither he nor his brother were willing to intercede. “My dad has a clear position (…). That we go there to make him weaken, when he has remained so firm… No. If we knew that it would be of some use, but it is that he will continue to be imprisoned, ”he asserted.

Albert Sánchez is 66 years old and suffers from prostate cancer. He was arrested on November 3, 2021. Last July, the regime requested five years in prison against him for the alleged crimes of public disorder and contempt.

So far, the authorities have not set a trial date for him.

In another interview granted to CubaNet, Albert assured that the hunger strike initiated by his father was a response to “the injustices that are being committed not only with him but with all the prisoners of July 11, 2021. We are talking about the fact that there are people , there are innocent young people in prison and the State is completely turning its back on the situation”.

“They are innocent people who are in prison and they don’t really have to be. It is the case of my dad and it is the case of many young people who are with him, ”he added.

According to other Valle Grande inmates, Albert Sánchez refused to wear a prison uniform, which led to his being denied the right to phone calls and sunbathing.

These reprisals in turn determined that from the night of Sunday, September 11, the protester began a hunger strike demanding the restitution of his rights, as well as his release and that of all the imprisoned protesters.
