Cuban pastor cleared of all charges

Stacy Harp reported Friday on Persecution Blog that all charges of trafficking in illegal immigrants have been dropped against an evangelical pastor in Cuba.

On Tuesday, December 13, a Cuban court absolved Rev. Carlos Lamelas of all charges of trafficking in illegal immigrants.In a statement Lamelas expressed concern that the Cuban government would look for a way to punish him. His lawyer told him that he might be required to pay a fine for the “falsification of documents”.

Lamelas was arrested in a police raid at his home on February 20. The evangelical pastor was in jail for more than four months, before being unexpectedly released from the Villa Marita Detention Center on June 26.

Thank you to all who prayed for and wrote to Pastor Lamelas.
