Cuban government cuts off dissident’s phone service

.- The president of the Christian Life Movement, Oswaldo Paya, has been targeted by the Cuban government for his dissident activities. This time they have responded by cutting off the phone service at his residence to keep him from communicating with the media during the visit to Cuba by Uruguayan president Tabare Vazquez.

“As we know, the coordinator of our movement sent a letter to President Tabare inviting him to visit his home in the poor suburb of Havana called Cerro, in order to discuss what is really happening right now in Cuba,” the movement said in a press release.

The movement denounced the new measures and the continual harassment and intimidation against Paya, saying they were related to the tense relations with the European Union, which has taken note of the lack of willingness on the part of Cuban officials to expand human rights and release political prisoners.

The Christian Life Movement called on the international community to increase efforts to end the “intimidation and isolation” and to ensure that the opinions of those who disagree with the Cuban regime can be heard.
