On the morning of the 25th (August}, whilst members of Porno Para Ricardo were
rehearsing in Gorki Aguila’s home, a policeman knocked at the door and asked the
singer to accompany him to the station, volunteering that he was only following
orders. ---- Gorki was taken to the Station at 3rd and 62nd, popularly known as
“the 5th “[precinct]. ---- According to relations and friends of Gorki, he is to
be held until Thursday at that station and will then face the courts on a charge
of “dangerousness” which carries a possible sentence of between 1 and 4 years in
prison. ---- So far his relations have not succeeded in getting to see Gorki so
his present condition is unknown.

It should be borne in mind that a couple of months ago there were reports of the
harassment being visited upon the lead singer of the Porno Para Ricardo punk
rock band, Gorki Aguila Carrassco (39), he having been summoned to his local
police station on Monday 17 June 2008 to a meeting also attended by one Jesus,
his sector delegate and chief. Gorki brought with him a tape recorder and
managed to tape parts of the meeting with the authorities. Similarly, since
Gorki refused to engage in conversation with those present, he brought with him
a written statement spelling out his opposition to the Cuban state as well as
his determination to carry on with his music. Under the Cuban Penal Code or Law
62 “dangerousness” is when someone is assessed as liable to commit an offence on
the basis of contradictions observable in his behaviour, according to the rules
of socialist morality (article 72 covering Dangerousness and Safety Measures).
Likewise Article 73 stipulates that habitual intoxication and over-indulgence in
alcohol, drug addiction and anti-social behaviour are regarded as constituting
“dangerousness”. Anti-social behaviours range from “acts of violence” to
“breaches of social norms”, through “social parasitism” and “the practice of
socially unacceptable vices”.

Gorki Aguila is to be held in the police station located at 3rd and 62nd.
Municipio Playa, until roughly Thursday when he will face summary trial on
“pre-criminal” charges, or, to put that another way, they have no charges to
bring against him. So far his father has been repeartedly calling to the police
station, better known as “the 5th” [precinct], but has not managed to get to see
his son.

The other members of Porno Para Ricardo and friends of Gorki’s are collecting
ready cash in order to hire a lawyer versed in cases like these.

It is expected that a press conference will he called in Havana to give the
details of the position of the leader of Porno Para Ricardo.
