The Prosecutor's Office asks for 15 years in prison for a Cuban writer for protesting 11J

A court confirms the convictions of the Garrido sisters for 11J in Mayabeque

The writer María Cristina Garrido Rodríguez and her sister Angélica, condemned in March to seven and three years in prison respectively after their participation in the 11J protests, their sentences were ratified after the appeal hearing held this Monday in the Provincial Court of Mayabeque.

According to Luis Rodríguez Pérez, Angélica’s husband, during the hearing the charge of attack was changed and the charge of contempt was maintained. However, the penalty did not change.

In the same audience were Alexis Pedro Acosta Hernández, Osmany Hernández Rodríguez, Giorbis Pardo del Toro, Yanet Sánchez Cocho and Patricia Lázara Acosta Sánchez. The five, a married couple and their daughter who were in the main square of Quivicán drinking with two friends, had a fight and, according to Rodríguez Pérez, were arrested and included in the same cause and their sentences were also confirmed.

When the astonished lawyer pointed out that this was already the sentence she received in the first trial, the magistrate replied: “Ah, yes! Here it is! Apparently there was a mistake. Well, then it stays that way, as it is.” “

“Their case is also sad, there is a 14-year-old boy who, if his parents’ sanction is maintained as it is, would be left in the care of his little sister who is very young and has a little girl. But nothing related to on 11J, nor with the Garridos. It is likely that they did it together to smear them with politics, or to give the Garridos a criminal connotation more common than political,” Rodríguez said.

According to her story, the judge – whom she describes as an actress – indicated that the Revolution was generous with children and the sentence of the mother of the family was modified to six years of correctional work with internment. When the astonished lawyer pointed out that this was already the sentence she received in the first trial, the magistrate replied: “Ah, yes! Here it is! Apparently there was a mistake. Well, then it stays that way, as it is.” “.

This Thursday the appeals of Abel Lescay were also held and, according to the musician himself, 18 more people who were with him in court. In addition, Makyel Puig, who was already sentenced to 20 years for his participation in 11J, was facing a second trial for allegedly assaulting a guard at the Quivicán prison where he was an inmate.

Until now the result of these processes has not transcended.
