Christian journalist harassed by Cuban state security

Yoe Suárez, an independent Christian journalist, was summoned by state security and informed that he could not travel outside of Cuba for indefinite time. The officers also threatened his wife and son on the grounds that through his work he sends counterrevolutionary messages.

The journalist had already been arrested on previous occasions for trying to interview other independent journalists and the Rigal couple, a Christian couple who were imprisoned for educating their children at home.

The authorities in Cuba continue to repress any dissident voice. They do not just violate the right to freedom of expression but also the right to express one’s beliefs or faith-based points of views. This often occurs when one’s actions imply any contradiction to the communist regime.
