Prosecutor seeks two-year sentence for "insult" to Castro

Prosecutor seeks two-year sentence for “insult” to Castro

SANTA CLARA, Cuba, December 2 (Guillermo Fariñas, Cubanacán Press / www.cubanet.org) – A prosecutor has requested a sentence of two years imprisonment for former political prisoner Jorge Luis Artiles Montiel, accused of shouting denunciations against President Fidel Castro.

According to a document submitted November 26 by prosecutor Maydolen Hernández González, Artiles Montiel made the remarks on June 12 in the privacy of his home.

Artiles Montiel is a former trainer of the Villa Clara baseball team and a member of the dissident Democracy Movement. He served 18 months in prison after being caught trying to illegally leave the country in 1993 and served a similar sentence in 2002 for refusing to testify against two dissidents who had been state security agents.
