A few weeks ago, Yris Tamara Aguilera was victim of a brutal beat down at the hands of the Cuban political police agent known as “The Weightlifter”. Today, she is suffering serious pains and consequences in the spot where she was hit (her head), and for this reason she has decided to direct herself to the General Hospital of Placetas, but her husband Antunez warns that it is very likely that she will be detained and even possibly beaten again, considering that the dissident couple has their home surrounded by armed forces who have orders to arrest them upon stepping out through the door. His message, straight from Placetas, Cuba:
“I am announcing that my wife- Yris Aguilera- will head out to the Placetas General Hospital in a few minutes in order to tend to some wounds she has in her cranium area, right where the agent known as “The Weightlifter” physically attacked her weeks ago. This injury which my wife has is product of police brutality. I am warning everyone about this because here in Placetas there is a strong military presence, with the armed forces of the Ministry of the Interior’s Special Brigades troops. This is why I am warning the world that my wife may be arrested again during the next couple of minutes. She will simply direct herself to the hospital seeking medical attention, because today she has been suffering from dizziness and pain in the cranial area and in parts of her back”.
-Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez”
