Exiled community wary of prisoners’ transfer

HAVANA TIMES, June 2 — It is still too soon to celebrate the transfer of political prisoners in Cuba, affirmed the Cuban American National Foundation (CANF), one of the most influential organizations of the Cuban exile in the United States.  The moving of six inmates up to now would be a strategy of the government to “turn away the attention of international public opinion” from issues such as releases or the hunger strike by dissident Guillermo Fariñas, according to statements to the press by Omar López Montenegro, director of human rights of the CANF, reported IPS.
