Cuba is the country with the highest rate of persons deprived of liberty

The 2021 Annual Report of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights confirmed that Cuba is the country with the highest rate of people deprived of liberty.

“Considering the total number of inhabitants of the country, reported by the World Bank, as well as the figures presented by civil society regarding the detained population, Cuba would be the country with the highest rate of prison population per capita worldwide. This , accounting for about 882 people deprived of liberty for every 100,000 inhabitants,” the report said.

On page 33 of the aforementioned text, the Commission explains that the Cuban government last offered data on the prison population in 2012.

“Regarding the lack of state information on people deprived of liberty, the Commission notes that the most up-to-date official data was published in 2012, when 57,337 people detained in the country’s prisons were counted,” they said.

They contrasted these data with those recently provided by civil society organizations that “document almost twice as many, registering as of March 30, 2021, nearly 100,000 people detained.”

In January 2022, a report by the Institute for Crime & Justice Policy Research (ICPR), based at the Birkbeck Law School, at the University of London, placed Cuba in fifth place in the XIII edition of the World Prison Population List (WPPL).

Prison population rates are estimated by analyzing the number of inmates per 100,000 inhabitants. In the list of countries with the highest prison population rate in the world in 2021, Cuba with (510) was only surpassed by the United States (629), followed by Rwanda (580), Turkmenistan (576) and El Salvador (564).

Another study published in 2018 pointed to the Caribbean island in the sixth position of countries with the highest percentage of prisoners per 100,000 inhabitants. The World Prison Brief report included 222 nations and also noted that there were 510 prisoners in Cuba for every 100,000 inhabitants.
