Regime which, in turn, he said, has been an official policy of genocide planned on two groups of people: political opponents and people of the black race.
"Zapata Tamayo had to suffer a double portion of this cruel discrimination for his humanistic ideas and being a person of the black race," Biscet who, in his labor as dissident work.was noted for his opposition to abortion, specifically with respect how disproportionately it is performed in Cuba.
Biscet blamed the government of Raúl Castro for Zapata's death, saying that since his arrival in prison, Zapata suffered the most cruel treatment, abuse and torture that led to a hunger strike until death.
"The government of Raúl Castro Poured all their hatred, racial discrimination and torture till his death. The death is just extra judicial murder," said Biscet. "Even after such lamentable event they continued by humiliating him with false testimonies."
The human rights activist, concluded that "imperialism Castro - Communist, murdered Orlando Zapata Tamayo.
"I just need to repeat to the Castro brothers with exclamation points: "murderers, murderers, murderers" reaffirmed Biscet.
