See below for update.
The Cuban Commission on Human Rights and National Reconciliation reported lin June that by its count, there are currently at least 114 political prisoners in Cuban jails, up from 102 at the end of 2013. (Read the list of prisoners here.)
Uncommon Sense is attempting to honor these brave Cubans by sharing their names and little about their respective stories. Ever since I started this blog, I have felt it vital to remember their names, names the regime would rather have the world never know. That is the only way to fully grasp the injustices they are suffering.
Today's prisoner is Rolando Sarraff Trujillo.
A former Cuban intelligence officer, Sarraff has been imprisoned since 1995, when he was convicted of espionage and sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Other information about Sarraff is not readily available, but a report last week noted that he would turn 51 years old on Aug. 22.
UPDATED, 6:40 p.m. EDT -- Rolando Saraff's sisters, who are in Spain, have a blog on which they report about their brother. Read it here.
