Amnesty International demands the immediate release of José Daniel Ferrer

MADRID, Spain.- Amnesty International (AI), an organization that analyzes the human rights situation in the world, demanded that the island’s regime immediately and unconditionally release the Cuban political prisoner José Daniel Ferrer, who has been held incommunicado for almost three months in the Mar Verde prison, in Santiago de Cuba.

“For 82 days, the political leader José Daniel Ferrer has been held incommunicado in prison. José Daniel Ferrer is one of hundreds of Díaz-Canel prisoners of conscience in Cuba. We demand his immediate and unconditional release! ”, He said this Wednesday from Twitter the director for the Americas of Amnesty International, Erika Guevara Rosas.

In a video that accompanies the publication, Amnesty International highlighted that in those 82 days the opponent’s wife, Nelva Ismaray Ortega Tamayo, has not received any signs of life from her partner, since the Castro authorities have prohibited her from visiting and communicating with him.

On May 18, Amnesty International sent an open letter to the Cuban president Miguel Díaz-Canel demanding the immediate release of José Daniel Ferrer and to date has not received a response.

This June 6, three months after the last phone call that allowed José Daniel Ferrer and almost the same time as the last visit of his relatives to prison, Ana Belkis Ferrer, sister of the also leader of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU), demanded from the regime faith of life.

Ana Belkis Ferrer also held Raúl Castro and Díaz-Canel responsible for what could happen to her brother in the prison.

José Daniel Ferrer, promoter of Cuba Decide and president of the People’s Party, was arrested on July 11, 2021 (11J) when he was preparing to join the popular demonstrations. They transferred him to a cell in the Versalles torture center, and at the beginning of August they sent him from there to the Mar Verde prison, where he has been since then and without a trial date.
