14ymedio, Placetas | June 22, 2014 — The activist Jorge Luis Garcia
Perez, known as Antúnez, was released last Friday with an injunction
that prevents him from leaving the municipality of Placetas without
permission. His arrest last Sunday at 10:30 p.m. generated many
expressions of concern and solidarity from the Cuban dissident community.

The activist must answer in court for an alleged crime of "public
disorder," for which a file was opened in preparatory phase, case number
651 2014. Initially Antúnez was threatened with being charged with
"contempt for the figure of Fidel Castro," but that charge was later

If he fails to obey the injunction Antunez could be imprisoned. His
current legal situation also prevents him from traveling outside Cuba.
