POLITICAL PRISONERS' FORCED LABOR SEVEN DAYS A WEEK By Héctor Trujillo Pis, Cuba Free Press.

CAIBARIEN - The forced labor plantation managed by the Ministry of the Interior (MININT) along the highway to Maleza is obliging the political prisoners to work without hourly limits seven days a week, according to Danilo Santos Méndez, member of the Pro Human Rights Party of Cuba. This group is affiliated with the Andrei Sakharov Foundation.

The political prisoners sleep in huts with roofs supported by poles, with virtually no walls, so they are quite exposed to the weather. They are not given work clothing or shoes and, consequently, the many who are recluse must do their farm work barefooted.

The chief of the plantation pushes the prisoners very hard; anyone who does not complete his established work quota is denied any leave pass.
