    Hi, I’m doing a research on Cuban prison systems and I read that the Cuban government denied Blue Cross access to their prison systems, so I’m wondering does that mean that their prisoners receive no medical attention, or are unprotected? Also, what are their rights, if any because although I’m now lawyer a lot of what I’ve read during my research suggests that they don’t have due process rights, freedom of speech, ROE or anything of that nature! Cuba isn’t at all what I assumed it was prior to this research anywho, please let me know of any websites I can find more information on this.

      Thank you for your comment. I’m afraid we’re not in a position to confirm exactly the level of medical attention and rights Cuban prisoners receive. I would recommend the Amnesty International website and the US State Department Human Rights Report as two sources of further information.
