THE VALUE OF LIFE IS RELATIVE By Rafael Contreras Bueno, Cuba Free Press.

PINAR DEL RIO - One of our policeman found his wife in the arms of her lover and stabbed her to death. He has served six out of an 18-year sentence. Another man slaughtered his cow without official permission; he has been sentenced to 20 years in jail. Yes, that's true. The penal code presently in force in Cuba provides for a 10- to 15-year sentence for homicide under certain circumstances. But for the illegal slaughter of a cow or steer, it calls for 12- to 25-year sentences.
