Guyana: Ministry silent on report Cuban dissidents being exiled to Guyana

A non-governmental organization (NGO) with links to Cuba’s largest opposition group, has identified Guyana as the main location where Cuba’s state security is exiling dissidents in its attempt to weaken opposition on the island and up to yesterday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs here was  silent on the matter.

At a press conference in Madrid, Spain on Wednesday, Cuban Prisoners Defenders, released a 259-page report that named 35 activists, independent journalists and artists whom they say authorities forced to leave the country over the past two years, telling them never to return.

The NGO which according to Reuters has links to the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU) was formed last year and registered as a non-governmental human rights organization.

The Reuters’ report of the press conference notes that more than a third of the 26 activists who responded to the NGOs online survey said they were escorted to the airport by state security and forced into exile.
