Cuban dissident José Rolando Cásares Soto has started a 15-month prison sentence after being convicted of "causing bodily harm."
Of course, in the inside-out world that is the Cuban justice system, Cásares didn't get in trouble for attacking someone else. His "crime," such as it was, was that he fought back.
A CubaNet report attempts to sort it out:
Dissident José Rolando Cásares Soto has started a 15-month sentence in the Kilo 5 ½ prison in Pinar del Río because of a fight in the street.
Cásares Soto said he was walking down the street on Aug. 25, 2008, when he someone punched him and he retaliated. Agents from State Security and the National Police arrested him on charges of causing bodily harm.
Cásares Soto is a member of the Cuban Human Rights Foundation and the Circle of Democratic Municipalities.
