Cuban Dissident Leader Remains Missing Days After Arrest

Friday, October 30, 2015
Cuban dissident leader Hugo Damian Prieto has not been seen or heard from since his arrest last Sunday.

As we'd warned over the weekend, the Castro regime began a manhunt against the members of Cuba's Civic Action Front (FAC-Orlano Zapata Tamayo), who staged a surprise protest at the Chief Prosecutor's office.

Damian Prieto was one of the leaders of that protest.

The protest called for the release of Zaqueo Báez Guerrero and Ismael Bonet Rene and María Josefa Acón Sardiñas, who were arrested over a month ago during Pope Francis' visit to Cuba.

Those three remain imprisoned -- incommunicado -- at the Ministry of the Interior's infamous torture facility, known as 100 y Aldabo in Havana.

Meanwhile, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas was in Havana discussing "security cooperation" with their  jailer, the Minister of the Interior, Gen. Carlos Fernandez Gondin.

Absolutely shameful.
