Cuba Rejects HRW Report

HAVANA TIMES, Nov. 19 – Cuba described today the report released yesterday by the Human Rights Watch (HRW)  non governmental organization, which criticized the performance of the Cuban authorities, as “an attempt to throw an oxygenating lifesaver to a reduced and discredited internal counterrevolution,” reported IPS.

An article published in Spanish in the official Granma daily accused HRW of subordination “to U.S. policy.”   It notes that such reports have been commonplace over the last five decades to justify the US economic blockade on the Caribbean island.
