The Castro dictatorship's criminal injustice against four recently convicted political prisoners is compounded by how hard it worked to keep away from the courthouse other Cubans trying to bear witness to what was happening.
For example, on the morning of May 31, the day of the trial for four activists accused of distribution anti-government leaflets, Cuban secret policemen arrested independent journalist and blogger Dania Virgen Garcia and another activist as they were leaving her home in Havana to block them from the proceedings.
They were taken to a Havana police station, and then other before being released at about 3 p.m. -- two hours after the trial was over. (The four dissidents were convicted and sentenced to prison terms of up to 5 years. Of course, the absence of independent observers at the trial makes it impossible to determine whether there was anything resembling due process was part of the proceedings.)
Before she was released, policemen took Garcia's cell phone, took out the SIM card and replaced it with another. When Garcia checked her phone, she found a wallpaper image of the lying, thieving, murdering Castro brothers and words expressing support for the dictatorship and insults for the "counter-revolution."
By its actions, the dictatorship revealed it believes Dania Virgen Garcia is a journalist to fear.
