Diario de Cuba, 20 September 2015, Havana–The government opponent Martha
Beatriz Roque was arrested this Saturday in Havana, activist Ailer
González reported via Twitter. Sources from the Ladies in White informed
Diario de Cuba that Roque was invited to the Apostolic Nunciature to
greet Pope Francis upon his arrival.

Also invited to welcome the Holy Father before the Nunciature was the
leader of the Ladies in White, Berta Soler. Dissident sources fear that
she has been arrested along with her husband, the ex-political prisoner
Ángel Moya, said Ailer González.

The activist also denounced “power outages” that opponents’ telephone
services are undergoing. Attempts to communicate by telephone with
various opponents were unsuccessful.

For his part, the leader of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU), José
Daniel Ferrer, sent word via a communiqué of the arrest of 26 activists
in Santa Clara who were intending to travel to Havana to attend the
Pope’s mass on Sunday. In the capital, Ferrer said, five members of his
organization have been arrested.
