Coachmen warned not to transport dissidents
SANTA CLARA, Cuba, November 24 (Yoel Espinosa Medrano, Cubanacán Press
/ www.cubanet.org) – The police chief in Santa Clara called coachmen in
the city to a meeting and warned them not to transport dissidents or
risk losing their licenses.
The chief, lieutenant colonel Francisco Darias, told those holding
licenses to operate horse-drawn carriages that dissidents use their
conveyances to attend anti-government demonstrations.
"Darias threatened to take away our licenses and to confiscate our carts
and horses if we rendered service to the human rights people," said one
coachman who was present.
