Regime Seeks (Imposes) 10-Year Sentence for Female Dissident

Monday, September 16, 2013
The Castro regime revealed today that it will seek (impose) a 10-year prison sentence against Cuban democracy leader, Sonia Garro.

It will seek (impose) a 14-year prison sentence against her husband, Ramon Munoz.

Garro, a member of The Ladies in White pro-democracy movement, has been imprisoned by the Castro regime since March 18th, 2012.

In the wave of repression leading up to Pope Benedict XVI's trip to Cuba, Castro's secret police raider her home, shot her with rubber bullets and imprisoned her.

She has been repeatedly abused and beaten in the women's prison of El Guatao.  Her husband is being held in the infamous Combinado del Este prison.

We pray Pope Francis will not abandon Sonia Garro, as his predecessor did.
