Granma newspaper announced the arrest of two persons for the acts of vandalism carried out against busts of José Martí and a wall with the image of Fidel Castro and Camilo Cienfuegos.
Their names are Panter Rodríguez Baró, 44, and Yoel Prieto Tamayo, 29. According to that source, they are currently under criminal investigation; one of them had “police records.”
The newspaper ensures that more information will be given later.
On January 2, several images of busts of José Martí stained with what looked like red paint appeared on social networks and according to Granma’s note it would be pig’s blood. The actions, of which there was no more graphic record than the one that appeared on this Facebook page, were claimed by a group that calls itself “Clandestinos.”
“That is how Havana awakened,” they published that day. “We put the heat on La Palma, the Cerro Police, the Latino, Alta Habana and others,” they said.
However, shortly after the publication of the note, a message where the administrators of the page say that “Clandestinos” does not know the people identified by Granma as the perpetrators, appeared on the same platform.
