Cuba: Dr. Biscet denied right to travel

It's wonderful that Cubans, or at least some Cubans, are now allowed to travel. Unfortunately, who gets to enjoy that benefit is not based on human rights, but by the arbitrary criteria of what best preserves the power of a dictator. According to Dr. Oscar Biscet's Twitter account, the Castro regime has decided that Dr. Biscet, former political prisoner, follower of Dr. Martin Luther King, a man committed to liberty and human rights for the people of Cuba, a man committed to real transition to democracy in Cuba, is not worthy of that benefit.

#Cuba Mi esposa @elsamorejon viajara el sabado a Miami,10.30am. No puedo acompanarla, la dictadura me niega este derecho.

Translation: #Cuba my wife @elsamorejon traveled to Miami Saturday, 10.30 am. I can not accompany, the dictatorship denies me this right.
