Christian Liberation Movement calls for release of all political prisoners in Cuba

.- In a brief statement released on July 6, the Christian Liberation Movement in Cuba, led by Oswaldo Paya, called for the release of all political prisoners in the country and expressed hope that the talks between the Church and the State would achieve this goal.
“Lord willing the talks between the Church and the Spanish government will result in the release of all political prisoners (including Agustin Cervantes, who is a prisoner of conscience),” the statement said.
The movement also said the Cuban government should provide information about the condition of the political prisoners.
“We will not make any more statements until this situation is cleared up, and we reiterate our request for the release of all political prisoners,” the movement said.

In the latest news, Raul Castro, the leader of Cuba, said on July 7 that he would be releasing 52 political prisoners. The news was made public by the Archdiocese of Havana after a meeting between Cardinal Jaime Ortega and Castro.

The Cuban government is believed to be holding about 160 political prisoners.
