Cuban State Security officials in early December promised political prisoner Marcelino Abreu he would be released in March, which was enough to convince Abreu to end a 70-day long hunger strike he started to demand his freedom. When it became apparent that the Castro dictatorship would not keep that promise, Abreu on Dec. 17 resumed his protest, which has left him critically ill in a Havana hospital.

This week, the regime told Abreu he will be released in August, two years after he was arrested for leading an anti-Castro protest on Fidel Castro's birthday and one year after he was sentenced to 4 years in prison on supposed charges of "public disorder" and "disrespecting" Castro.

Abreu, according to his wife, is skeptical about the latest assurances.
