Independent journalist threatened with internal deportation

HAVANA, Cuba, May 29 (Ana Aguililla / – Two State Security agents detained independent journalist Carlos Serpa on Monday, taking him to the Zulueta Street police station for questioning.

Serpa said he was detained because State Security knew that he was going to report on a protest march by former political prisoner Jorge Luis García Pérez, known as “Antúnez.”

Serpa said he was warned that he would be sent back to the Isle of Youth, where he has his official residence, if he continues reporting on opposition activities.
