POLITICAL PRISONER HELD 17 MONTHS WITHOUT TRIAL By Héctor Trujillo Pis, Cuba Free Press.

CAIBARIEN - Political prisoner and member of the Democratic Solidarity Party (Partido Solidaridad Democrática) Iván Montesinos Ramírez, resident of Jagüey Grande, Matanzas province, has been in prison 17 months without a trial. The government has charged him with transmitting "enemy propaganda."

The police arrested Montesinos Ramírez Sept. 4, 1997, for allegedly writing anti-government graffiti in various places in his town. The prisoner of conscience is confined in the South Combined Prison (Combinado Sur) of Matanzas. The state prosecutor said he wants to sentence the prisoner to six years of imprisonment.
