The Czechs have been there

The Czechs know what it is like to live under the yoke of tyranny, and they have always been a friend to the cause of freedom in Cuba and to the Cuban people. They have been there, and they know what it is like.

Unlike Spain, the Czechs are willing to grant banished and forcibly exiled Cuban prisoners of conscience political asylum. And yesterday they announced that they are doing just that.

Czech Republic to accept freed Cuban political prisoner

Prague - The Czech Republic plans to grant asylum
to a recently released Cuban political prisoner and his family, the Interior Ministry said Monday.

The ministry did not identify the man, but earlier reports citing his wife named him as Rolando Jimenez Posada, a lawyer who was sent to prison in 2003.

Jimenez Posada arrived in Spain on October 22 after Cuba's Communist regime agreed to free up to 52 dissidents as part of a deal with Spain and the Roman Catholic Church.

The lawyer was apparently not on the list. He is due on Prague on Tuesday.
