STATE SECURITY AGENT TELLS MOTHER OF JESUS JOEL DIAZ HER SON HAS ENDED HIS HUNGER STRIKE. By Onel Ramón González, Cuba Free Press.

Ciego de Avila.- An official of the Cuban State Security named Gustavo, who is in charge of political prisoners in the Canaleta provincial prison in this city told Magalys Hernández, mother of prisoner of conscience Jesús Joel Díaz Hernández, that her son has ended his hunger strike. He also said her visit about April 18 would not be suspended.

Joel Díaz was in an isolation cell when his mother met with Gustavo last week so she has no proof of what happened. She was sad about not being allowed the right to see her son so she could check his health.

Jesús Joel Díaz Hernández, prisoner of conscience, journalist and founder of one of the first agencies of independent journalists in Cuba, has been in prison two years for the so-called crime of "disrespect."
