Cuban computer sciences university student denied readmission for accessing the internet

In Cuba, even when you are lucky enough to find an internet connection, it does not mean you are actually allowed to use it. Cuban university student Reyner Aguero discovered this the hard way when his request for readmission into Cuba's University of Computer Sciences (UCI) was denied because he was caught accessing the internet from work.

Imagine that: A computer sciences student not allowed back into a university because he used a computer to access the internet. Only in Castro's Cuba.

Reyner Agüero denied readmission into UCI for accessing the Internet from work

Cuban university authorities have denied Reyner Aguero's request for readmission into the University of Computer Sciences (UCI), said Yoani Sanchez on Twitter this morning. According to the blogger, the reason given for denying his readmission was his "having accessed the internet from work." Aguero was expelled from the university because of an interview he gave this blog, which happened to be the second-most read post during 2011.
