Cuba Ranked Near Bottom on Press Freedom

HAVANA TIMES – Cuba repeated in 2014 as one of the worst countries in terms of press freedom, according to the annual global report by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) published this week in Paris, reports AFP.

Press freedom remains poor in Latin America, especially Cuba, Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Venezuela and Brazil, although Costa Rica and Uruguay came in 21st and 26th respectively.

The organization deplores the lack of freedom in Cuba, “which does not tolerate any independent press,” but said that the emergence on the island “of a civil society that questions the system” can be observed.
Eritrea, North Korea, Turkmenistan and Syria closed out the global list.
