Released Cuban dissidents denounce mistreatment of deceased prisoner's mother


The latest two dissidents to be released from prison by the Cuban government have denounced the repression and “abuse” suffered by the mother of deceased Cuban dissident Orlando Zapata.

Reporter Fabio Prieto Llorente and activist Juan Carlos Herrera Acosta of the group Young People for Democracy, the two latest political prisoners to be released, arrived at the city of Alcoron in Spain, where they were met by fellow Cubans who expressed their support.

Speaking to the press, they denounced the harassment Zapata’s mother has been suffering—sentiments echoed by Amnesty International as well—and they said that despite the release of prisoners, they do not see signs of openness in the Castro regime.
