During the 45-minute presentation, Mrs. Carro, who serves as president of the Coalition of Cuban-American Women, relayed recent information obtained directly form Cuba on the condition of the many prisoners who are gravely ill and subjected to extremely inhumane prison conditions. Following her report, Ms. Llanes Labrada gave a poignant account on her husband's condition as well as the impact his incarceration has had on her family. (She and her four children now live in Texas.) Finally, the Commissioners viewed a video in which two former political prisoners spoke about their experience in Cuban prisons.
