    The trial of two Cuban dissidents and their neighbor, who have been in
    pre-trial detention in Cuba since March 2012, was postponed for the
    fourth time Friday without explanation.

    The human rights group Amnesty International said the postponement left
    the three Cubans in “unfair legal limbo.” Their trial was originally
    scheduled for November 2013 but has been repeatedly rescheduled.

    No new trial date was set Friday nor an explanation given for the
    postponement, Amnesty said.

    Sonia Garro Alfonso, a member of the Ladies in White, her husband Ramón
    Alejandro Muñoz González and their neighbor Eugenio Hernández Hernández
    have been charged with public disorder and attempted murder. Garro also
    has been charged with the crime of atentado — violence or intimidation
    against a police officer.

    The charges stem from March 18, 2012 when an act of repudiation was
    staged at the home of Garro and Muñoz by pro-government Cubans trying to
    prevent the couple from taking part in events commemorating the
    anniversary of the 2003 Black Spring crackdown against dissidents.
    Cuba’s public prosecutor claims that Muñoz and Hernández threw objects,
    including a television, from the roof of the Garro-Muñoz home at two
    state security agents.
