Cuban Independent Journalist Gets Long Prison Sentence

Monday, February 23, 2015
Cuban independent journalist, Yoel Bencomo Martinez, was handed a one-year prison sentence earlier this month.

He had been imprisoned since July 2013, without due process, and will now serve another year.

Bencomo is another political prisoner overlooked by the Obama-Castro deal.

His crime? Taking pictures of political arrests by Castro's security forces.

He's being held at La Pendiente prison in Santa Clara.
