February 2, 1962: Dr. José Antonio Muiño Gómez, age 44, was executed by firing squad at Sagua la Grande, Las Villas, Cuba.
In 1959, soon after the revolutionary government rose to power, Dr. Muiño started working as a dentist at the San Antonio de los Baños Air Force base, Havana province. Communist activity and Soviet influence were soon apparent and, as a devout Catholic, he did not accept ideological training. This led to his constant surveillance by State Security and arrest in June 1961. Months later, Dr. Muiño was subjected to a summary trial, charged with counter-revolutionary activities, and immediately executed. He left a wife, two daughters and an adopted son.
February 1972 (exact day unkown): Political prisoner Iván Sánchez Friol, age 18, was shot to death by a prison official at OMA Prison, Ciego de Avila, Cuba.
