More Dissidents Arrested Than Released

Friday, September 3, 2010
During the month of August, the Castro regime arrested more dissidents than it released (or more precisely, banished to Spain).

According to the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation (CCDHRN), last month there were 71 documented police raids on dissidents, which resulted in 184 arrests.
Of these, eight dissidents appear to be facing long prison terms -- five in the eastern city of Baracoa and three in Havana.

Meanwhile, only six political prisoners were banished to Spain by the Castro regime -- and none released in Cuba.
Yet somehow, only the six banishments seem to get general media attention.
