Cuban Dissident Rapper Gets One-Year Prison Sentence Today

Wednesday, January 28, 2015
Today, the Castro regime handed rapper, Maikel Oksobo (known as "El Dkano"), an arbitrary one-year prison sentence.

He was sentenced under a draconian charge known as "peligrosidad predelictiva" ("dangerousness likely leading to a crime"), which is used to imprison dissidents for long terms.

As part of the Obama-Castro deal of December 17th, another imprisoned rapper, Angel Yunier Remon ("El Critico") was recently released.

However, he has now been replaced in Castro's "revolving-door" of political prisoners by another dissident rapper.

Meanwhile, Cuban artist Danilo Maldonado ("El Sexto") remains imprisoned since Christmas Day and is currently in poor health, battling pneumonia in the Valle Grande Prison.

The Obama-Castro deal is clearly a farce-a-minute.
