Cuban criminal proceedings are like a lion-monkey fight. With the monkey tied up

Julio Ferrer Tamayo was born on 25 October 1958 in Santiago de Cuba in a humble neighborhood. As a child he took an interest in law, since his father Julio Lorenzo Ferrer was a popular judge at the district court. First, he studied the pre-vocational military school of the Marañon Brothers in Daiquiri, which was part of a program of the Ministry of the Interior, for which he was later accepted without problems to the University of Havana, where he graduated in 1985 with a degree in Law. Immediately after finishing his studies, he began working at the courts of the Ministry of Justice. First, he was appointed Professional Judge of the Municipal Court of Guanabacoa, a year later he was promoted to the Fifth Chamber of the Criminal Court of the Provincial Court, and later became President of the Sixth Chamber of Criminal Matters in Havana. Working as a judge in Guanabacoa, he opposed imprisonment merely due to being on the "danger index", which caused him problems with the regime, and in 1993 he ended his service as judge. It was impossible for him to start working at collective law firms, but finally, around 1994, he was accepted into one, from where he was expelled ten years later. In 2008, he began to help Cuban dissidents in matters of law and became associated with the Cuban Legal Association. In 2012 his wife Marienys Pavó Oñate was stood on trial and imprisoned. Julio was also imprisoned from 20 February to 21 September 2015. He was constantly prevented from playing the role of his wife's lawyer, and she is currently still in the Western Women's Prison. Julio works as a specialist lawyer at the Cubalex Legal Information Center and remains under the threat of imprisonment for the alleged commission of the crime of falsification of public documents.
