The trials of Manuel Otero Alcántara and Maykel Castillo Pérez, prisoners of conscience, are set to start on May 30 and May 31, 2022, respectively, in Cuba. Otero Alcántara and Castillo Pérez have been in pre-trial detention for nearly a year, after being detained for criticizing the Cuban government. A prosecutor has requested that they be sentenced to seven and ten years in prison. We urge Cuban authorities to grant access to international organizations to monitor the trials and to immediately unconditionally release these prisoners of conscience.TAKE ACTION:
