State Department News: On the Prosecution of Cuban Journalist Roberto Quinones
Washington DC (STL.News) – The US Department of State released the following statement:
The U.S. government strongly condemns the prosecution of Roberto Quinones. We call upon the Cuban regime to immediately release Mr. Quinones and to cease their abuse and mistreatment. On April 22, Cuban police arrested journalist Roberto Quinones. His “crime” was reporting a story regarding a pastor and his wife who were imprisoned for home-schooling their child.
On August 7, the Cuban regime convicted Quinones on dubious charges of resistance and disobedience and sentenced him to one year in a labor camp.
