(Premier Christian News) The wife of a Cuban pastor who was detained amid protests in Cuba has issued a desperate plea for information about his condition.
Pastors Yéremi Blanco Ramírez and Yarian Sierra, both tutors at the William Carey Biblical Seminary in Matanzas and both associated with the Berean Baptist denomination, are being held in poor conditions in a wing of the Matanzas women’s prison. The president of the seminary, Reverend Jatniel Peréz, is under constant surveillance by state security and has been prevented from leaving his home.
In statement sent to religious freedom charity Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Adelys Rodríguez Reyes, the wife of Pastor Blanco Ramírez, wrote: “Our family and that of Yarian Enmauel Sierra are desperate because we have no news of them. They told us where they are holding them, but they have not even given us the right to call them, nor have they told us how they are, nor have they given us any news at all. Until when?! Until when are we going to have to endure the abuse, mistreatment, the injustice!
