HAVANA, Cuba, September 6, 2013, Juan Carlos González Leiva /
www.cubanet.org.- Political prisoner Daniel Camacho Marchena was
released in Ciego de Avila earlier this week, according to what the
former prisoner himself declared during a visit he made to the Council
of Human Rights Rapporteurs after leaving prison.
He had been revoked and imprisoned on January 17, 2013, in the Canaleta
Provincial Prison of Ciego de Avila, for writing anti-Castro signs on
the public walls in the city saying: Down with Fidel and Raul!
Camacho Marchena was on parole because previously he was sentenced to
four years in prison in joint sanction, which expired on August 29, 2013.
He is 43 years old and a member of the Council of Rapporteurs of Human
Rights in Cuba and in the Municipal Democratic Circles.
He lives at No.93 D Street, between Maceo and H Castillo, Ciego de Avila.
Camacho is now in dire economic conditions. Making his situation worse
is that he has a one-year-old child.
