The young man, identified as Alexander Aleaga Ramirez, is located in the municipality of Güines and the province of Mayabeque. He went out on January 6 at a party with a friend and has been missing since that day.
“His aunt contacted me to publish the publication of our group and show the disappearance of the young man, so we did. A few hours later, he wrote to me very nervously and asked me to remove the post immediately because Alexander’s life was in danger, something I did immediately.”Irma Broek explained this in a publication in the group “Condemnation of Crimes in Cuba.”
In the statements of CybercubaBroek, who is also the manager of the aforementioned Facebook group, his aunt told him that after the party. The father thought that the young man was at the house of a woman he owned, but then he found out that she was not.
He says that the father called the family in Granma, where they are from, and he is not there either.
The concerned aunt sought Broek’s help, and she made a publication in the aforementioned group reporting the incident.
He explained that three or four hours later, the aunt wrote to him, asking him to delete the publication because of the extortion the family received.

In the Facebook group “Reporting Crimes in Cuba,” Irma Broek clarified that “the aunt and other relatives were contacted from Mexico by a person; when she refused, the criminal blocked her but sent her the photo where he was with the young man. a knife to his neck, but it was also clear that it was a setup.
The woman made it clear that in her publication she pursued two goals: the first, “appealing to anyone who can give us any information about Alexander’s whereabouts,” because “his relatives are desperate.”
Another reason is to “alert people who are in the same situation as this family; this is not the first case of extortion received by a Cuban family; do not pay.They are criminals who take advantage of other people’s misfortune.”
