There are more than 1,000 political prisoners in Cuba, Prisoners Defenders denounced

The organization Prisoners Defenders (PD) denounced that in Cuba there are 1,002 political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, who have been sentenced to jail or suffer limitation of freedom by prosecutors without any judicial supervision, in a flagrant violation of international law.

In a statement, the Madrid-based NGO assures that there were 272 political prisoners at the beginning of August 2021.

However, in the last twelve months, until July 31, 1,251 people have suffered “political” imprisonment in the country, according to what he adds, 887 of them after the protests against the Government on July 11 last year.

All of them are tortured, as demonstrated by the detailed study of 101 random cases reported by Prisoners Defenders before the United Nations Committee Against Torture (CAT) presented in March.

According to the cases that the PD has been able to verify, among those who are still serving sentences or precautionary measures, there are 38 minors in total.

Of these, 26 have already been sentenced, 16 for sedition, to an average sentence of 5 years in prison.

In total, 171 protesters have already been sentenced for sedition.

Another 697 prisoners of conscience are serving sentences of between 1 and 25 years; others are sentenced to 30 years and up to life imprisonment (12 of them).

And at least 122 women (including those of the trans gender) still have political and conscientious orders and convictions.

Altogether, there are 729 convicts of conscience (deprived of liberty); 242 convicted of conscience (with limited freedom), another 31 cases of political prisoners.
