Marc Masferrer reports at Uncommon Sense:

Cuban political prisoner Antonio Antonio Villarreal Acosta has been transferred to a sanitarium, according to a report posted at Diario de Cuba.

The move coincides as the Castro dictatorship prepares to move some political prisoners under an arrangement made with Catholic Church officials. However, Villarreal's transfer is apparently not part of that deal, as he was moved just hours after a meeting between the dictator Raúl Castro and Cardinal Jaime Ortega.

Villarreal, who has been imprisoned since the 'black spring' crackdown of 2003, reportedly suffers from psychological and other health problems.
