FIRING SQUAD AT WORK IN LAS TUNAS. By Ramón Humberto Colás Castillo, Cuba Free Press.

LAS TUNAS - In the first two weeks of this June, the death sentence by firing squad was carried out on Boris Serrano Cañizares, a young man charged with four murders in the municipality of Colombia, in the southern sector of this province.

This was the fourth execution in this province recently; there are more than ten other people sentenced to death awaiting appeal of their sentences by the Council of State.

This region has a population of a little more than 500,000 and the crime rate is very high if one takes into account that more than one per 100,000 citizens have been sentenced to death.
