The Cuban "justice system" is a farce, just another manipulation the Castro regime uses to target its opponents and to keep its grip on power.
This is clear when you recognize the dictatorship's nasty habit of charging dissidents with "common" crimes, like "assault" or "public disorder," as a way to get them off the streets and to silence their voice. By doing so, the authorities hope to diminish their targets' credibility by branding them as nothing more than criminals.
When targeting the married couple of Gertrudis Ojeda Suárez and Yoandris Naoky Ricardo Mir, the regime is being a little more creative.
At a closed-door hearing in the eastern Cuba town of Banes on Wednesday, prosecutors informed the couple they were being charged with "defecating on the mother of Fidel Castro" at a cemetery, a charge that apparently carries a punishment of two years in prison.
I shit you not.
Other activists say the couple is being targeted because of their opposition to the Castro dictatorship. In recent months, they were subjected to "acts of repudiation" after they hanged anti-Castro banners and posters on the walls of their residence.
