    A week after his promised release, Cuban political prisoner Calixto Martinez still in jail

    April 05, 2013

    A week after his promised release, Cuban political prisoner Calixto

    Martinez still in jail

    A week after Cuban prisoner of conscience Calixto Ramon Martinez ended

    his hunger strike when his jailers promised his release was imminent, he

    remains in jail.

    Not a surprise in the least — a promise from the Castro regime is worth

    nothing, until we know whether they have kept it. But it remains

    important to keep paying attention to Martinez's plight, to hold his

    jaiers accountable.

    Friday evening, Cuban independent journalist Roberto de Jesus Guerra

    reported via Twitter that Martinez had been transferred from the

    Combinando del Este prison in Havana to the Valle Grande prison, also

    near the capital.

    Does this mean Martinez, who has been unjustly jailed since Sept. 16, is

    about to be released?

    Only actions, not promises, will tell.

    The International Press Institute this week renewed its call for the

    Castro regime to release Martinez."
