Dissident loses his house because of anti-government activities

Dissident loses his house because of anti-government activities

HAVANA, March 3 (Juan Carlos Linares Balmaseda / www.cubanet.org) –
Cuban authorities have seized the home of Alejandro Miguel Novoa
Zaldívar on grounds that anti-government meetings took place there.

“It’s a lost case,” said defense lawyer Orlando Castro González.

Novoa, 35, is a delegate of the Democratic Solidarity Party and an
activist in the Juan Gualberto Gómez Racial Integration Movement.

Novoa will have an opportunity to appeal the seizure before the
Provincial Civil Court. The municipality on January 16 refused to return
the house.

The one-room wooden house with an outside toilet has long been in
Novoa’s family. Novoa had allowed a homeless dissident couple, Grisell
de la Caridad Palomino Ruiz and her husband, to live there.

Municipal housing director Susana Pérez Ferrol said the couple
maintained a “negative political conduct” while living in the house.
