"The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) condemned the Cuban regime's arbitrary detention of journalist Henry Constantín Ferreiro and demanded his immediate release. It marks the second time this month that the journalist has been detained.

Constantín Ferreiro, the director of La Hora de Cuba magazine in Camagüey, was arrested on September 15 by the Cuban political police, State Security, during the inauguration of the G77+China Summit in Havana.

In a phone call, Constantín Ferreiro stated that the authorities detained him for 'being in Havana illegally' and that he would be returned to Camagüey 'within fifteen days if transportation becomes available.' Constantín Ferreiro is the regional vice president of the IAPA's Commission on Freedom of the Press and Information."
