(Evangelical Focus) — Journalist and writer of evangelical faith Yoé Suárez arrived home early morning on Saturday, Aug. 10 after being questioned by the Cuban political police.
He was detained on Friday in the city of Guantánamo (southeast of Cuba), where he had planned to conduct a series of journalistic interviews.
Speaking to Evangélico Digital, a news website for Latin America linked to Evangelical Focus, Suárez explained that he was in the neighbourhood of Pastorita where he was to meet Catholic journalist Roberto Jesús Quiñones. Quiñones has been sentenced to one year or prison for his journalistic work (as a regular reporter for Cubanet), but has not been imprisoned yet as an appeal is pending.
Hours before, Suárez had been able to interview another journalist, M.A. Vázquez, of the Diario de Cuba, a meeting that was recorded in the memory card of his mobile phone, which he has been able to keep. A third interview was in his agenda, with relatives of the Rigal family, a couple that has been imprisoned for homeschooling their daughter, after she had been bullied for her Christian faith.
