A 27-year-old receiver Cepeda, who was imprisoned in Tampere, Finland, in July 2016, together with eight teammates from the Cuban National Team, and charged with rape in September same year, has been released from jail. Or, at least, that’s what his Facebook post from September 30th implies!
Firstly, the fact that ex-Cuba team captain Cepeda changed his profile picture on Facebook was odd by itself since people in prison do not have an access to the internet. Secondly, some of his comments and comments of his Facebook friends, among are some big names of the country’s volleyball like Michael Sánchez Bozhulev or Yoandy Leal, undoubtedly pointed out that he was no longer in jail.
“Thanks, I’m free!” Cepeda answered to one of the comments.
Until the official news of Cepeda’s release from the Finnish prison arrives, we remind you that one of five Cuban players that were charged with rape already left prison and got a compensation for the time he spent there. Four players, including Cepeda, are still officially in jail.
