    Independent journalist sentenced to two years of house arrest

    Independent journalist sentenced to two years of house arrest

    SANTIAGO DE CUBA, November 7 (Virgilio Delat/APLO) – Independent
    journalist Guillermo Espinosa, who had been held in isolation since his
    arrest two weeks ago, was sentenced by a tribunal in Santiago to two
    years of house arrest for “social dangerousness.”

    Espinosa, who had raised the government’s hackles by repeatedly
    reporting on the ongoing dengue fever epidemic, was also told to find a
    job with a government entity or risk serving the rest of his two-year
    sentence in prison. The tribunal told him his reporting is an activity
    that affects the interests of the State.

    Ironically, Espinosa was fired three months ago by the Public Health
    service, where he had been working as a nurse, for his political leanings.
