Painting by Ahmad Abu Hannya

This past April 21st the prisoner Disley Mancilla Lopez was victim of a beating by the functionary of Interior Order, Pelsido, and the chief of the detachment, the so called re-educator, Isaiin, both whom are sub-officials of the direction of penititiary establishments of the Ministry of the Interior.

The 35 yeard old Ciego de Avila resident, Mancilla Lopez, is currently in provincial prison while waiting for a trial and is confined to detachment 7 of this Provincial Prison of Canaletas in Ciego de Avila. After the beating he cut himself in one of his arms.

This cruel, inhumane, and degrading act constitutes the unpunished violation of articles 58 and 30 of the Socialist Constitution, number 11 of the draconian penal code, and number 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
