“The Guantánamo prison is another universe; it is like living in a spaceship.”
Enrique Mustelier Sosa was born on December 29, 1982, in Guantánamo. His father was sentenced to 16 years of deprivation of liberty for his attempt to extract plans of the defensive system of the eastern region of Cuba to the US naval base. As a young man, Enrique was self-employed, although he did not have an official license. Because of his opinions against the communist regime, Enrique was threatened with prison. During Christmas in 2010, he tried to flee Cuba through the Guantánamo Naval Base. On December 24, 2010, he was captured, and a few days later, on December 31, 2010, he was admitted to the Guantanamo Provincial Prison, where he spent the next five years. In 2015, after his release, he resumed his oppositional activities. In addition, he continues to investigate the reasons why his father was allowed to “escapee” in April 2013. He has a strong suspicion that his father was murdered in prison.
