"The political police fined and closed the precautionary measure of house arrest against independent Cuban journalist Camila Acosta. She remained [in house arrest] for ten months pending trial, due to her participation as a reporter in the anti-government demonstrations of last July 11, in Havana.

(...)

'Accepting this fine means that, without even being able to defend myself, I accept an arbitrary measure or [accept] that I committed this alleged crime. But, on the other hand, it means that I will not have to go to court. Knowing about the constant violations that are committed and my state of total defenselessness before the law, this is the lesser of evils. Whereas going to trial would mean facing a certain sentence, from three months to a year,' she said."
