(Álvaro Yero / www.cubanet.org) – Dissident Rogelio Hernández was fined 1,000 pesos, the equivalent of about three average monthly salaries, for illegally using a state truck to carry a home-made boat in which he and seven others planned to use to leave Cuba.
Hernández and the others were stopped by the National Revolutionary Police January 5 en route to the beach at Tarará east of Havana.
He was also place under house arrest until his trial on charges of trying to illegally leave the country.
