Gov. Allows Prisoners to Remain in Cuba

HAVANA TIMES, Sept. 23 — The Cuban government will allow the released prisoners who are opposed to going to Spain to remain on the island, under an extra-penal permit that liberates them from the 2003 judicial process against them, reported IPS, citing Spain’s El País daily. Madrid hopes that the release of the 52 dissidents concludes before October 25, when the European Union will again review its relations with Cuba.
