Teachers punished for maintain relationship with dissident

SANTA CLARA, Cuba, November 2 (Guillermo Fariñas, Cubanacán Press / www.cubanet.org) – A Communist Party official ordered the public chastisement of a school teacher who refused to leave her husband, a government opponent and former political prisoner.

Maipú Pérez Naranjo refused to attend an October 14 meeting of teachers of the Silvio Flietas school at which director Osmayda Zacarías criticized her for consorting with a dissident, her husband, Guillermo Pérez Yera, provincial delegate of the Pedro Luis Boitel Civic Resistance Movement.

A fellow teacher and childhood friend, Idalmis Rojas Aguilar, who went to the defense of Pérez Naranjo, was later transferred to a remote school for three years of “rehabilitation.”

The meeting of teachers had been ordered by the local Communist Party secretary, named Maria Victoria, after she failed to convince Pérez Naranjo to leave her husband.

“My wife refused to be blackmailed,” said Pérez Yera. “She does not allow work issues to affect interfere with family life.”
