Last Friday, the Castro regime arrested gay activist Aliomar Janjaque Chivás, president of the LGBT Reinaldo Arenas Foundation, for collecting testimonies that documented abuses against the gay community in Cuba.
The testimonies were to form part of a legal proceeding initiated at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague against the Castro regime for "crimes against humanity." They were subsequently confiscated by the Cuban authorities.
Janjaque was arrested while interviewing various men who had been interned in labor camps due to their sexual orientation.
Didn't Fidel Castro recently express regret over the repression against Cuba's gay community?
So was he -- once again -- lying?
