Cuba to Free Another 10 Political Prisoners

HAVANA – The Cuban government plans to release 10 additional political prisoners, including one of the “Group of 75” dissidents rounded up and jailed in March 2003, the island’s Catholic hierarchy announced Wednesday.

Magaly Broche, wife of Group of 75 prisoner Librado Linares, told Efe that Cardinal Jaime Ortega telephoned her with the news of her husband’s impending release.

Linares’ release will leave just two of the Group of 75 behind bars.

Unprecedented talks between Cardinal Ortega and Cuban President Raul Castro led to an agreement last June for the release of all 52 Group of 75 members still in custody.

Since then, Cuban authorities have freed dozens of political prisoners who agreed to accept what they hope will be temporary exile in Spain.

Several Group of 75 prisoners who rejected those terms have also been freed, though at a slower pace.

The nine non-Group of 75 prisoners whose release was announced Wednesday will travel to Spain with their families, the Archdiocese of Havana said. EFE
