British Embassy in Cuba calls for end to Castro regime’s latest wave of repression

A statement from the British embassy in Havana:

Recent reports of short term detentions in Cuba

British ambassador Dianna Melrose comments on the situation.

Commenting on recent reports of short term detentions in Cuba, British ambassador Dianna Melrose said:

“We are concerned about increased reports of political and human rights activists being detained for short periods. The high number of detentions in Santa Clara and Eastern Cuba are a cause of particular concern, as is the aggressive treatment of the Damas de Blanco, and we urge the Cuban authorities to allow peaceful activists to go about their work free from arrest or the fear of it. President Raúl Castro has emphasised the need to tolerate different views and we hope this will translate into reality”

  1. I guess the US, Canadian and Mexican embassies or interest sections are too busy enjoying their mojitos to look.
