Rafael Matos Montes de Oca
After an 85-minute trial closed to the public, Cuban activist Rafael Matos Montes de Oca on Monday was found to be a "pre-criminal social danger" and sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison, according to the CIHPRESS news agency.
Matos, a member of the Resistance and Democracy Movement arrested Sept. 27, is the second member of the group to be imprisoned in Guantanamo in the past 10 days. (The first was Emilio Plana Robert.)
"Social dangerousness" is one of the bogus "crimes" the Castro dictatorship uses to provide a veneer of legitimacy to its repression of its opposition.
