Cuba: Government must embrace constructive criticism of its human rights record

Ahead of today’s Universal Periodic Review of Cuba’s human rights record by the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Erika Guevara-Rosas, Americas Director at Amnesty International, said:

“Cuba’s government must embrace constructive criticism at today’s review of its human rights record at the UN. This is a timely opportunity for the new administration to make a fresh start, transform confrontation into dialogue, and move forward with a new human rights agenda by ratifying key human rights treaties, abolishing the death penalty and guaranteeing freedom of expression. The dark days of censorship and undue interference in people’s daily lives must be left in the past.”
