A well-known Cuban dissident has arrived home, after being freed from prison against his will.

Hector Maseda left jail with another dissident, Angel Moya.

Both had refused to leave before other opposition campaigners arrested in a 2003 crackdown.

Maseda told reporters he was forced to leave jail against his will. He wants to be exonerated or pardoned but instead was simply given parole. He plans stay in Cuba and continue with his opposition activities.
