UNKNMOWNS SNATCH WELL-KNOWN DISSIDENT OFF STREET By Ricardo González Alfonso, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - Leading dissident Oscar Elías Biscet González was apparently kidnapped on Friday morning (Sept. 10) off a street in the municipality of "10 de Octubre" (October 10) here in Havana.

Biscet had been arrested Wednesday and released Thursday evening by the political police. All that time his whereabouts had been unknown.

Later, Manuel Valenzuela Salt, administrative director of the Civic Brotherhood School for Civil Disobedience, said he asked school member Alejandro Chang Castillo early Friday to accompany Dr. Biscet from his home at 464 Acosta Avenue to the School. As Biscet and Chang walked, a man described only as being in civilian clothing grabbed Biscet by the neck and shoved him into a station wagon which then took off at high speed. The station wagon fit the description of those habitually used by the political police for covert operations. According to Chang, everything happened so fast that he didn't have time to react.

Biscet is the president of the Lawton Human Rights Foundation and an advisor to the Civic Brotherhood School.
