At least ninety political prisoners remain incarcerated in Cuba’s jails, according to a new list compiled in Havana by the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation.
“Apologists of the Cuban dictatorship are still heralding this banishment, which in itself was a violation of international law,” said CapitolHillCubans, a bipartisan pressure group:
Note that this doesn’t include the nearly 7,000 democracy activists that were arrested for shorter-periods throughout 2012. And these are only the ones that have been thoroughly documented.
Thus, the number of political prisoners in Cuba has actually increased — despite the banishment – since 2011. More “reform” you can’t believe in.
