Gabriel Boric: “In Cuba there are prisoners for thinking differently and that is unacceptable”

The Chilean president, Gabriel Boric, described this Thursday as “unacceptable” that there are people imprisoned in Cuba “for thinking differently”, days after his arrival in the United States to attend the Summit of the Americas that is being held in the city of Los Angeles. Angels.

The president made these statements in an interview with the Telemundo media.

Regarding the decision of his Mexican counterpart, Manuel López Obrador, not to attend the meeting due to the absence of Venezuela and Nicaragua, he has clarified that he “cannot judge the decision” and has urged dialogue through “multilateral spaces.”

Boric is in Los Angeles to participate in the Summit of the Americas and hold a bilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden.

On the other hand, the US government made a harsh review of the crimes committed in recent years against opponents in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela, under regimes that were not invited to the Summit of the Americas for these human rights violations.

Brian Nichols, Under Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, lamented that critical voices are suppressed by these governments. “The politically motivated arrest and trials of peaceful protesters continue to be an affront to democracy. The harsh sentences imposed punish political opposition and attempt to silence anyone who supports democracy,” he said in a speech to the Summit and posted on his Twitter account.

In this framework, he detailed the recent violations that have recently been committed in these countries.

In the Cuban case, Nichols highlighted that in the July 2021 protests, the regime arrested more than 1,400 protesters and prosecuted hundreds, including minors.

“Instead of addressing economic and human rights demands, the Cuban government began an era of ruthless repression, accusing protesters of sedition and sentencing them to between seven and 30 years in prison,” he noted. In addition, he stressed that this is not a novelty on the island, since violations of the legal system have a history of decades under the Castro regime.

Regarding Nicaragua, the official indicated that since 2018 “the Ortega-Murillo regime has orchestrated a brutal repression of human rights in response to widespread opposition to the regime’s policies, which has caused the death of more than 320 citizens.”

He also recalled that in the run-up to the elections, “the regime arbitrarily imprisoned more than 40 opposition figures, including seven potential presidential candidates,” as well as prominent independent journalists, “rigging the result long before the vote.” in which Daniel Ortega obtained a new mandate.

Speaking of Venezuela, Nichols focused on the harassment and torture that imprisoned opponents have suffered.

“Political prisoners are isolated, they are denied adequate food and medical treatment. Prisoners have been tortured through beatings, immersion in water, electric shocks, and exposure to low temperatures,” he denounced.

“Prisoners report experiencing sexual violence by security forces,” Nichols added.
