JAILERS TRANSFER PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE ALFARO TO "COMBINED OF THE EAST" PRISON By Ana Luisa López Baeza, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - Government authorities have transfereed prisoner-of-conscience Reinaldo Alfaro Garcia to the prison facility known as "Combined of the East" in the outskirts of Havana.

Family sources told this reporter that they hoped to see the prisoner last Tuesday at the military hospital "Carlos J. Finlay", in the neighborhood of Marianao.

"But in the wee hours of Monday, by phone, the officer in charge of his case, Orlando Jorge, told us that the next Monday, very early, Reinaldo would be transferred to 'Combinado,'" according to Alfaro Garcia's sister, Marlene Alfaro. She added that the family is very concerned about the sudden transfer of her brother because the previous Monday, the orthopedic physician who was caring for him at "Finlay" hospital, for his back problem had prescribed 10 physical therapy sessions which now he will be unable to receive.

"They took him from the hospital without giving us time to get some bed sheets, towels, and other toiletry items to him," she said.
