Cuban refugees held by Bahamian government fear for their lives

Cuban women refugees protesting their detainment by Bahamian officials - March, 2013.

The saga of Cuban refugees protesting their detention and abuse at the hands of Bahamian authorities continues. The detainees, who escaped Cuba via boats and rafts and ended up in the Bahamas, are complaining of harsh treatment and are fearing for their lives.

Martí Noticias has this report (my translation):

Cubans in the Bahamas express fear for their lives

A group of Cubans detained in the Bahamas have expressed fear for their lives. From the detention camp in Nassau, the Cubans are denouncing to Radio/TV Martí that they are being physically mistreated and held in deplorable prison conditions. According to sources interviewed by reporter Ricardo Quintana, it appears their situation is a product of an arrangement made between the governments of the Bahamas and Cuba.

In a related story, the government of the Bahamas is apparently having a difficult time dealing with this public relations disaster. DIARIO DE CUBA is reporting that two reporters from AmericaTeVe were detained for several hours by authorities when they arrived in Nassau this past Friday to investigate the Cuban detainees claims.
