Angel Santiesteban Transferred, Whereabouts Unknown

From Cubanet

We received a note dated and signed today, 3 August, from the attorney Amelia R. Rodríguez Cala, who represents the writer Ángel Santiesteban. She asks us to divulge:

“I have learned that Angel Lázaro Santiesteban Prats, whom I represent, has been moved to a prison where the sanction imposed by another will be vacated, without his family having been informed of where he was taken.

“In my capacity of representing his legal interests, to immediately restore legality and to tell his family where they’ve taken him, I reiterate that my request to the Minister of Justice was to order his immediate release during the ongoing process of the appeal presented, Amelia R. Rodriguez Cala.”
