National police stage roundup in Matanzas province

FROM CUBA
National police stage roundup in Matanzas province

MATANZAS, Cuba, February 9 (Oscar Sánchez Madan / www.cubanet.org) – The
national police staged a series of raids last week in the Matanzas town
of Pedro Betancourt, making arrests and seizing goods used in private
businesses, but which the government calls illicit.

Dissident Ulises Sigler González said during the evening of February 1 a
dozen policemen in a cruiser and a motorcycle with a sidecar showed up
in the town. He said they went to homes where a sewing machine and
shoe-repair equipment was seized.

Sigler González said two people were arrested and later fined 200 pesos
– the equivalent of about a month’s salary – and later released.
