"KILO EIGHT" JAILERS ABUSE "SUBVERSIVE" PRISONER By Odalys Curbelo, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - "My worry is that even though capital punishment is hanging over his head, he is also threatened and abused in prison," said the mother of Humberto Eladio Real Suarez to this reporter.

During the December 27 family visit of Graciela Suarez to her son, in the prison called "Kilo Eight," she found out that an officer of the "Internal Order" named Jorge tried to hit her son but upon missing him started to insult him.

Ms. Suarez added that an officer named David recently hit her son on the head with a cane. "This is another reason for my worries," she said. "That is why I want the whole world to know of the situation in which he is kept."

She continued, "After a long trip to reach the penitentiary, I had to wait seven hours to see Humberto Eladio, and then for only 45 minutes. The authorities'justification for this arbitrary action was that there were too many family members for the visit."

Humberto Eladio Real Suárez entered Cuba with a Florida group labeled "subversive" in October 1994. He was indicted on April 30, 1996, on charges of murder and other alleged actions against members of the Office of State Security (OSS).

The prisoner is now in section 10, cell 23, of maximun security, in the Camaguey prison "Kilo Eight" awaiting an appeal to the Supreme Court of Cuba.
