Cuba: Freedom of assembly and expression limited by government policies

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 25/027/2012

In this submission, Amnesty International assesses the implementation of a number of recommendations that Cuba supported during its previous Universal Periodic Review. The organization expresses concerns about the continued restrictions imposed on the rights to freedom of expression and assembly, thereby limiting the ability of Cuban citizens to seek, impart and receive information from independent sources. Amnesty International also raises grave concern about the increased use of arbitrary detention, including short-term and incommunicado detention, and harassment of those expressing views contrary to those of the government.
