The Cuban regime incurred 140 violations of press freedom in Cuba during July

The Cuban Institute for Freedom of Expression and the Press (ICLEP) recorded 140 events on the island in July that it considers violations of press freedom, the highest monthly figure so far in 2022.

According to a statement from this NGO based in Cuba, in the year as a whole it has recorded 409 acts that violate the freedoms of journalists in the exercise of their profession.

In July, he explained, most of these events occurred around the 11th, the first anniversary of the largest anti-government protests on the island in decades.

Specifically, the ICLEP registered -according to its classification- 96 arbitrary arrests, 22 restrictions in the digital space (limitation of internet access) and 22 threats and psychological attacks.

Among the affected professionals are Camila Acosta, María Matienzo, Luz Escobar, Yunia Figueredo, Boris González, Jorge Amado, Juan Manuel Moreno, Frank Abel García and Yadiris Luis Fuentes, among others.

So far this year, this NGO has denounced 189 arbitrary arrests, 126 restrictions in the digital space and 69 threats and psychological attacks, as well as 11 acts of abuse of state power and 4 physical attacks.

The ICLEP also recalled that the journalist Lázaro Yuri Valle Roca was recently sentenced to five years in prison for the crimes of “ongoing enemy propaganda” and “resistance.”

The Cuban media is divided between those dominated by the dictatorship and the independents, a heterogeneous group of mostly digital actors -many based in Cuba, Miami and Madrid- that operate on the island between threats of jail and constant repression.
