Cuban opponent Guillermo Fariñas shares information about the 11J trials with MEPs

Cuban opponent Guillermo Coconut Fariñas met this Wednesday in Brussels with the president of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, with whom he spoke about the island’s political prisoners and the severe sentences that Justice has handed down to the July 11 protesters.

“I spoke with the president of the European Parliament about the terrible impunity with which the Cuban regime is carrying out the trials against the protesters of July 11, the severe sentences imposed, including minors. And I mentioned specific cases,” said the leader. by Fantu ( United Anti-Totalitarian Forum).

Fariñas, 2010 European Parliament Sakharov Prize winner, was invited by the Cuban Human Rights Observatory (OCDH) and also spoke with Spanish MEPs from different groups, such as Antonio López-Isturiz, Juan Salafranca and Leopoldo López (popular group), Nacho Sánchez Amor (Socialist Party), Soraya Rodríguez Ramos and Javier Nart (Renew Europe) and Hermann Terstch (Vox).

Fariñas, who conveyed to the European representatives his solidarity on behalf of the Cuban democrats with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, stated that there is discomfort on the continent due to the position of the Cuban government and its support for Putin.

“I hope that this opens the eyes of certain political forces even more, and they are more demanding with the Government of Cuba”

“In my meetings, I confirmed the great anger that there is in Europe with the Cuban regime, for its support of Russia in the war against Ukraine. I hope that this opens the eyes of certain political forces even more, and they are more demanding with the Government of Cuba. “, he exposed.

Fariñas also met with Jonathan Hatwell, head of the Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean Division of the European External Action Service, and officials from the Human Rights Unit of the European Parliament.

The opponent’s visit takes place three months after both he and Berta Solerleader of the Ladies in White, warned of the possible resignation of the Sakharov Prize if the European Union maintained its current policy towards the Cuban Government.

At that time they wrote letters to the EU representative for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, and to the then President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, who recently passed away.

In the letters they said they felt “abandoned and undervalued” by the EU and once again rejected the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement (ADPC) between Cuba and the Twenty-seven. The bilateral relationship with Havana depends on the European Executive, not on the European Parliament.
