Cuban Refuses Military Service, Serves Someone Else

Miscelaneas de Cuba reported that a Cuban has refused to obey a citation in the “Area of Attention” ordering him to participate in 15 days of military exercises. Mr. Adonis Salgado Pérez informed Major Tomás Martínez that he belonged to a political party led by Huber Matos, one of the principal Comandantes of the Cuban uprising against Batista, imprisoned for thirty years after rejecting the betrayal of the 1950’s rebellion by the emerging dictator, Mr. Fidel Castro.

The mayor threatened Mr. Salgado with imprisonment too.
