They ask Borrell to intercede for José Daniel Ferrer, detained on J 11, before the Cuban regime



The dissident and coordinator of the Unpacu platform, Jose Daniel Ferrer, has been in prison for more than 120 days.

During these four months he has been transferred several times from prison, and has barely had contact with his family, according to a complaint. la ONG Prisoners Defenders (PD).

In the two calls that Ferrer was able to make to his wife, Nelva Ismarays Ortega, he related the situation in which he found: «I am still in the same cell, a totally walled cell, I cannot even use the mosquito net because there is nowhere to tie up, there are just four white walls, the air does not flow, there is no window that communicates with the outside, you can see absolutely nothing outside, that is, a total confinement … The worst thing, I have a constant noise in my head that as if they were crickets, constantly ringing in an unbearable way. And that constantly gives me a more continuous headache. This is stated in a statement sent by PD, in which the NGO asks the EU High Representative for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, to “intercede” in favor of Ferrer, “tortured, ill and intoxicated with psychotropic drugs in prison in Cuba.”
