    Twelve Ladies in White Arrested Outside Combinado del Este prison

    Twelve Ladies in White Arrested Outside Combinado del Este prison / 14ymedio
    Posted on October 2, 2015

    14ymedio, 1 October 2015 – The regime opponent Martha Beatriz Roque
    denounced the arrest Thursday of 12 Ladies in White protesting outside
    the Combinado del Este prison in Havana. The activists presented
    themselves at the place to complain about the prisoners Ricardo and
    Ariel Gonzalez Sendiña, sons of the Lady in White Lazara Barbara
    Sendiña, who are on hunger strike.

    The two prisoners, convicted of the alleged crime of theft and slaughter
    of cattle, maintain their innocence. Since they began fasting, both are
    in punishment cells. The women demanded answers about their state of
    health, but the prison authorities did not give details.

    The organization’s leader, Berta Soler, at the site, reported by
    telephone to the reporter Lazaro Yuri Valle Rica on the imminent arrest
    of the activists. Minutes later, in her Twitter account, Soler describe
    the arrests as “brutal.” To date, the whereabouts of the protesters is
    unknown and their phones are shut off.

    The leader of the Youth Front of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU)
    Carlos Amel Oliva Torres, was also arrested on his return from a trip to
    Spain. The activist is right now in the Third Police Unit in Santiago de
    Cuba.
