Cuba: No freedom of association

Agents of the Department of State Security threatened ex-political prisoner Roberto Calimano with a 20-year prison sentence for associating with government opponents and independent journalists.

Calimano said agents called him into the police station in the La Víbora neighborhood of Havana at the beginning of the month. At the station, an officer who called himself Frank told him, Calimano said, that for him to express solidarity with the 75 dissidents arrested in March last year was a crime for which he could end up being sentenced again.
