10/01/13 - Tribune - Bahamas marines face trial in Cuban migrant case Sarasota Herald
Lt. Origin Deleveaux says the men are facing a summary trial before a
military officer who will act as the judge. The names of the marines and
the charges against them have not been released.
The hearing was in its second day Tuesday at the Coral Harbor Base and was
closed to the public.
The marines are accused of beating Cuban migrants who attempted to escape
from the Carmichael Road Detention Center in May. The alleged mistreatment
following the escape attempt as well as the overall conditions for
migrants inside the detention center sparked protests among advocates for
Cuban migrants in Florida.
