Details of the case Cuban authorities are trying to build against anti-Castro activist Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia emerged Monday after Belkis Cantillo was allowed to visit her husband in jail.
Cantillo, who along with Ferrer and other activists had been arrested April 2, told Radio Marti that state security officials told her that Ferrer was facing numerous charges, including "public disorder" and accepting money from overseas and that he was at risk of having his parole revoked.
Ferrer was one of the Group of 75 activists arrested during the "black spring" of 2003. He was sentenced to 25 years but paroled last year after the dictatorship, the Catholic Church and the Spanish government negotiated their release. (Ferrer was one of a dozen prisoners who refused to take overseas exile as a condition of their parole.)
If Ferrer's parole is revoked, it could mean being forced to serve as 17 more years in prison -- not counting any time the regime might tack on to punish him for his non-stop activism since his release in 2011.
