Prisoners Sleep on the Floor

On the night of June 9th, several of the prisoners within the walls of Canaleta Prison, Ciego de Ávila, slept on the floor. I have heard, in Section 3 cell 43, Juan Jesús Linares Quesada slept on the floor in the dirt despite several complaints to the guards.

I also found out from some military sources that at the prison the same night, two prisoners did not have a mat to sleep on due to the excessive numbers of prisoners housed here at this time.

Despite this, we will be taking in various other prisoners from Havana and about 100 other prisoners from cities throughout the province.
