Cuban officials apologize for disruption at Catholic parish

.- The Nuevo Herald reported this week that Cuban officials have apologized to the Archdiocese of Santiago for the violent incident that took place on the grounds of the Church of St. Therese of Jesus, where some 200 police officers and government officials assaulted a group of dissidents.

The pastor of the church, Father Jose Conrado Rodriguez, said he was surprised by the apology and the respectful attitude of officials, and he expressed his hope that the gesture would have the public repercussions that the problem merits.

“This has been a very serious problem that has not yet been completely resolved, because the State Security has continued monitoring the parish and watching the activities of parishioners,” Father Conrado said.

“We are not going to remain silent, because denouncing is the only form we have to stop the excesses against a people that are sick to the bones with fear,” he added.
