Dissidents in Madrid Urge “Discretion” over Immigration Reform

HAVANA TIMES — The Observatorio Cubano de Derechos Humanos, funded by the controversial US National Endowment for Democracy and based in Madrid, warned on Wednesday about the “wide margin of discretion” maintained in the hands of Cuban authorities with respect to the new immigration reform on the island, reported EFE.

The Observatorio considered the repeal of exit permits and requirements for letters of invitation a positive step but argues that the law remains “very far” from international standards and the Declaration of Human Rights.

The statement points out that the new reform doesn’t include the right of Cubans living abroad to enter the country, a decision that continues to be subject to interpretations concerning the “political positions of the individual.”

  • Circles, can I send a big F*** to NED, who helped to install many puppet-dictatorships in Latin-America? Thanks.
