Thus far in 2009, there have been 18 prisoner deaths -- 10 by suicide -- in Cuba's prisons, according to testimony given to El Nuevo Herald by victim's families and human rights activists on the island.
Unofficially, throughout 2008, there were 42 deaths in Cuba's prisons, 23 of them due to lack of medical care and 11 by suicide. However, Cuban dissident groups and international human rights monitors believe other unknown cases would raise this figure to between 50 and 100.
