    LA HABANA, Cuba, 8 October 2013, Juan Carlos González Leiva/
    www.cubanet.org.- The life of political prisoner is in serious danger.
    He has been on a hunger strike for three weeks, in Guamajal prison in
    Villa Clara. The news was passed on this Monday, October 7, to the Cuban
    Council of Human Rights Rapporteurs (CRDHC) by his sister, Maritza Abreu.

    Maritza said this this Sunday morning she was able to converse with her
    brother by phone for a moment, during which she heard some
    unintelligible words because he can barely speak

    The source added that she received a phone call from the head of prisons
    for the province of Villa Clara, who authorized the brief phone contact.
    He told her he would let her see Bonora to ask him to abandon his hunger
    strike.

    Abreu Bonora, who remains in legal limbo and has been waiting 14 months
    for a trial, had announced to the protest to the CRDHC before beginning
    it, at which time he told them he would not abandon it until he was
    released, because, according to what he said, he had been unjustly
    imprisoned.

    He was imprisoned on August 13 of last year, for making anti-government
    statements that day, on Obispo boulevard in Old Havana, the date on
    which Fidel Castro’s birthday is celebrated. He had been paroled a year
    earlier, after having engaged in a long and dramatic hunger strike in
    the prison, proclaiming his innocence, in relation to an accusation of
    the supposed crimes of Assault and Contempt.

    Marcelino Abreu Bonora, 49, belongs to the Hard Line and Orlando Zapata
    Tamayo Boycott Front, the Patriotic Union and Municipal Democratic
    Circles pf Cuba. He resides in Caibarién, Villa Clara.
