Formerly enslaved Cuban doctors file lawsuit against Cuba and Venezuela for ‘modern slavery’

Via Noticias24 (my translation):

Seven Cuban doctors file lawsuit against Cuba and Venezuela for "modern slavery"

Seven Cuban doctors and one nurse filed a lawsuit against Cuba, Venezuela, and Venezuelan state company PDVSA for alleged conspiracy to force them to work in conditions of "modern slavery" in order to pay down Cuba's debt to Venezuela for oil shipments.

According to court documents presented in the U.S. that EFE reviewed, the targets of the lawsuit "intentionally and arbitrarily" placed the health professions in "conditions of indentured servitude," effectively turning them into "economic slaves" and political pawns.

La demanda fue interpuesta el pasado viernes ante un tribunal federal de Miami (EEUU) por los médicos Julio César Lubian, Ileana Mastrapa, Miguel Majfud, María del Carmen Milanés, Frank Vargas, John Doe y Julio César Dieguez, y el enfermero Osmani Rebeaux.

The lawsuit was filed this past Friday in a Federal Court in Miami (U.S.) by doctors Julio César Lubian, Ileana Mastrapa, Miguel Majfud, María del Carmen Milanés, Frank Vargas, John Doe,  and Julio César Dieguez, as well as by nurse Osmani Rebeaux.
