Cuban Political Prisoner Shows Torture Marks

Thursday, May 9, 2013
Yesterday, Cuban political prisoner, Luis Enrique Lozada, was released by the Castro regime.

He was released pursuant to the pressure exerted by over 60 democracy activists of the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU), who led a hunger strike protesting his unjust imprisonment.  Among these were his 17-year old son.

In an interview this morning with Radio Marti, Lozada described how he was tortured by the Castro regime.

He was beaten and hog-tied for long periods of time, a method know by Cuban political prisoners as the "Shakira" -- in reference to the chain that is wrapped around their waist.

UNPACU has also released the following picture of Lozada's scars:
