Reporters Without Borders calls on the Cuban authorities to quickly release Angel Santiesteban-Prats, a writer and blogger who has been held for the past two months and who has been on hunger strike since his transfer to a different prison at the start of this month. He is now in an isolation cell.
“On 9 April, the same day that the authorities acceded to calls for dissident journalist Calixto Martínez’s release, Santiesteban-Prats was transferred to Prison 1850 in the Havana suburb of San Miguel del Padrón and was subjected to a ‘maximum-severity’ regime of treatment.
“His detention is both cruel and absurd. The authorities are trying to make an example out of him, but they will never be able to prevent the population from expressing itself in diverse ways. We urge them to release him without delay. At the same time, we appeal to him to abandon his hunger strike.
