Detention and House Arrest of Activists on the ’Maleconazo’ Anniversary

Frank Reyes López, Delegate of the Party for an Independent and Democratic Cuba (CID) in Villa Clara, Víctor Castillo, Alcides Rivera and Félix Reyes, were all arrested by officials of the State Security Department at 9 a.m. on 5 August at the intermunicipal bus station and taken in patrol carrs to their homes, where they remained in police custody until 7 p.m.

Frank Reyes López – who is the source of this information – reported the arrests by telephone, describing how the officials of the State Secuirty Department remained outside the activists’ homes, preventing them from going out to celebrate the anniversary of 5 August, the day on which a group of Cubans went out into the streets of Havana to protest against the regime, an event known as the ‘Maleconazo’.
