Cuba Seeks Internet Control with the Help of Belarus

HAVANA TIMES, Jan 27 — High level authorities from Cuba and Belarus met in Havana this month to increase cooperation in information technology, transmission and communications to apply tighter controls on the Internet.

The meeting was attended by the executive director of the Belarus Broadcasting Company and that country’s minister of Communication and Informatics, who met with Alfredo Nieves, Cuban’s ambassador to the former Soviet republic.

According to the website Café Fuerte, the high-level meeting took place two weeks after the Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko approved a new law restricting internet access to citizens in his country.
