Laritza Diversent, Translator: Unstated

Sonia Garro Alfonso, a member of the Ladies in White and the Afro-Cuban
Independent Foundation, was transferred to the women's in Havana
and will be processed by the investigative body of State Security,
according to her sister, Yamile Garro, who informed this reporter on
Tuesday.

Sonia, in a note, managed to send the file data for the preparatory
phase, located under the number 9 of 2012, when she was still in
custody at the police station at Seventh and 64th in . However,
neither she nor her family know the crime they are charging her with.

Sonia was last March 18 in a raid by riot police at her home
located on Avenue 47 in Marianao, at which time her husband, Ramon Munoz
Alejandro Gonzalez, was also arrested and taken to the Combinado del
Este prison in the capital.

According to reports from Yamile Garros' neighbors, political police
agents took her off the public , forcing her to return to her
house.An act of provocation that upset her husband Muñoz González. The
military, wearing helmets and shields, broke the fence and broke into
the house, firing rubber bullets.

According to Yamile, in the raid they also detained three other people,
whose names are unknown. One is in prison, along with Sonia and her
husband. The others were released.

Garro Alfonso belongs to independent civil society organizations, such
as the Afro-Cuban Independent Foundation, the Ladies in White, and he
directs the Independent Cultural Center. State Security often threatens
him with the initiation of a criminal process against him. Between
October 2010 and June 2011, he was the object of more than 17 warnings
for disorderly conduct.

The warnings can lead to the imposition of pre-criminal security
measures, and a sentence of between 1 and 4 years in prison for
anti-social conduct, which according to the Penal Code is seen in people
who habitually break the rules of social coexistence by acts of
, provocation, or disturbing the order of the community.
