GOVERNMENT ARRESTS CUBA PRESS REPORTER ODALYS CURBELO SANCHEZ By Héctor Cruz, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - This afternoon, January 13, government agents arrested Cuba Free Press correspondent Odalys Curbelo Sánchez, 35, of the Rancho Boyeros neighborhood.

Earlier, some unknown person, calling herself "Alba," phoned and said, "I advise you to stay calm but get yourself to your home province of Pinar del Rio."

Curbelo Sánchez, formerly a mathematics professor, was put out of her job because of her expressions of politically incorrect opinions some years ago. For the past 18 months she has been serving as a reporter for this alternative news agency. She has one son, age 8.

Political analysts who declined to identify themselves told this correspondent that the reporter must have been taken to the police headquarters here in Havana, probably to the famous Villa Marista, formerly a religious school closed by the police. The analysts said they based their opinion on the fact that Curbelo Sánchez proved herself to be such an accurate, efficient and objective reporter from the time she began to work for Cuba Free Press.

This is the fourth occasion on which this journalist has been taken to police headquarters since she began her professional activities with this politically incorrect news agency.
