Monday, August 01, 2005   By: Juan Paxety

From Cubanet:

Group who tried to leave Cuba now being held in prison

SANTA CLARA, Cuba - July 28 (Guillermo Fariñas, Cubanacán Press / - A group of dissidents from Villa Clara who tried to leave Cuba via Guantánamo Bay have been transported to a prison, although leaving the country without an exit visa is not a punishable crime.

Luis Enrique Junquera García, Juan Carlos Alpízar Rodas, Aleixis Sotolongo Díaz, Didier Arencibia Pérez and Orlando Rodríguez Salazar, all members of the Liberal Party of Cuba, tried to leave June 25.

Alexis Lázaro Pérez Bernal, a relative of one of the men, said he had been advised that the group was being held at the Aguadores prison in Santiago de Cuba. 

Reason, when does fidel need a reason to lock folks up?
